Take a break from a busy schedule and spend a weekend in Veliky Novgorod, one of the oldest and most important cities of Ancient Rus. Novgorod was founded more than a millennium ago (859) on the River Volkhov. This is much earlier than the first mention of Moscow in the chronicles (1147) and many centuries before the foundation of St Petersburg (1703). The famous trading route from the “Varangians to the Greeks”, i.e. from the Scandinavians to Byzantium, passed through the city which gave it strategic importance. We customize tours on request.

Lorena D'Souza, USA: Highly Recommend Discovery Russia!travelled with Discovery Russia in January this year and did their essential Russia tour of St Petersburg and Moscow and would absolutely recommend. I was a little apprehensive about travelling to Russia but really had nothing at all to worry about. Discovery Russia organised everything from pick ups to private tours, metro cards and provided a very useful guide to completing the visa processes.
