From medieval history to haute cuisine; incense filled churches to roof-top bars; and Pskov masonry to chrome high-rises – Russia is in a constant state of evolution. Russia’s extravagance is a result of the larger than life characters who have created her story – Russian art, politics, literature, music, dance, drama, and even architecture have an intense flamboyance unlike anywhere else.
In Moscow, visit the Red Square and the Kremlin, where you can see the largest bell in the world – as well as the largest cannon. In St. Petersburg visit the Peter and Paul Fortress, and walk along the famous Nevsky Prospect. With Terraficionados, there’s even an opportunity to be among the few ever allowed into the Grand Kremlin Palace in Moscow, or to be invited into the Russian Ballet School in St. Petersburg.
