Overview

Russia’s vast geographical distances and cultural differences mean you don’t tick off its highlights in the way you might those of a smaller nation. Instead view Russia as a collection of distinct territories, each one deserving separate attention. Whether you're a culture vulture in search of inspiration from great artists and writers or an adventure addict looking for new horizons to conquer, Russia amply delivers. If ancient walled fortresses, glittering palaces and swirly-spired churches are what you’re after, focus on European Russia. Here Moscow and St Petersburg are the must-see destinations. Moscow is approx 6 hrs 30 mins flight from Delhi depending on the flights you choose.
Come and experience Russia with our "Simply Russia" package.
