Russia's history is colorful and tumultuous - there's no better way to discover its layers than seeing them with your own eyes.

With Discovery Russia, you experience so much more than a historical glimpse. Our History Trips delve into past importance, implications and ramifications throughout the journey.
Arguably the most exciting part of any historical trip to Russia (and a must-see for all visitors, in our opinion) is the Golden Ring. A charming venture into Russia of years gone by, the Golden Ring is a collection of towns filled with monuments, churches, town squares and museums in the style of medieval Russia. The exact locales included in the Golden Ring are often debated, which can make it challenging to choose which are worth visiting. The guides at Discovery Russia have done the hunting for you, ensuring that your Golden Ring package visits the best destinations that the region has to offer.
Grand Old St Petersburg
The home of the Romanov family for centuries, it is not surprising that St Petersburg as one of the highlights of Russia. boasts regal and opulent airs. Historical wonders lie around every corner of its cobblestone pathways, and across every bridge over St Petersburg's many canals. Often described as Russia's European connection, the city does have a certain European 'je ne sais quoi' attitude - yet St Petersburg is still undeniably Russian.
The history of St Petersburg is wild and rampant, peppered with nefarious characters like Rasputin and technicolored onion domes as seen on the Church of the Savior on the Spilled Blood. It's impossible to come to St Petersburg without being amazed by the historical significance of the city.
