Mark Dawson, Trans - Siberian Train Tour: "This has been an incredible trip. The service from Discovery Russia has been exceptional and the guides provided were knowledgeable about their cities and gave us an experience we will never forget. If I do this trip again I would take even longer to see this amazing country".
The attraction and highlights of Russia are difficult to sum up in words. As the largest country in the world, it's not difficult to see how Russia can have it all. From UNESCO listed towns to nightlife rivalling the world's most sleepless cities, Russia packs a vodka-fuelled, culturally rich punch. Thirty years after the demise of the Soviet Union, 2020 is the perfect time to plan your Russian holiday.

To say that Russia is the best travel destination in the world right now is a grand statement - but one we feel is justified. Russia has a historical prowess that you'll be pushed to find anywhere else - with stunning architecture and huge museums and galleries to boot. The imperial dreaminess of St. Petersburg, best seen on an evening cruise through the city's canals. The vibrant tapestry of Moscow, where you can walk from the imposing Kremlin to urban hotspots boasting a modern ideology and contemporary thrum. The traditional mastery of the Golden Ring, home to centuries of Mother Russia homage. Siberia, an adventure better left for the more steadfast travellers amongst us - but a rewarding landscape whose harsh exterior shelters a heart of pure gold.
Russia is a trove of surprises, where you're best left to leave expectations at home - particularly if you're expecting to see displays of brute power and a boring crowd of oppressed citizens. A Russian vacation is more likely to greet you with a modern-historic fusion, and a sense of bright optimism on even the most dreary of days. It's hard to miss the cathedrals, palaces, galleries and museums that have attracted visitors to Russia for decades. But the real beating heart of the country lies off the beaten track, in local eateries, Christmas markets and cobblestone lanes. The best way to make the most of Russia? With an all-inclusive package led by the most dependable agency in the business.
