The world’s most scenic railway journeys meets an artistic history like no other
Zdravstvuyte, welcome to Russia. The world’s largest country is understandably difficult to sum up, with steppes, plains and mountains, walled fortresses and domed churches amongst its wonders. Moscow and St Petersburg are the obvious contenders for travel, unless you’re going to travel on the Trans-Siberian Railway of course. Both cities offer incredible visions of history, with Red Square and the Mariinsky theatre, incredible orthodox churches and art museums. You can also visit far flung villages where life has barely changed in centuries – in a country this big, the kind of holiday you have is up to you! If you want to warm up with vodka and borscht, and lose yourself on the steppes, then VISIT RUSSIA!
