Itinerary

ARRIVAL ST. PETERSBURG

Arrival in St. Petersburg, optional transfer to HotelAmbassador**** check-in, welcome meeting, optional welcome dinner at the hotel

ST.PETERSBURG

St. Petersburg is an amazing city. Its imperial palaces and museums enjoy worldwide fame, while the Neva River and the many canals have deservedly given the city the title “The Venice of the North”. When the city is covered in snow it has a special romantic atmosphere. During the morning sightseeing tour we get acquainted with all the splendours of the city: the Winter Palace, St. Isaac’s Cathedral, the Church of the Bleeding Saviour, the Nevsky Convent and much more. The afternoon offers an optional visit to Pavlovsk with the impressive Pavlovsk Palace and experience a real Russian winter adventure during an unforgettable troika ride.

ST. PETERSBURG

Morning offers an optional visit to the world-famous Hermitage Art Museum. In the evening we enjoy an optional entertaining and fabulous Russian New Year Gala at the hotel.

ST. PETERSBURG

The optional tour this morning offers a visit to a holy mass in the Orthodox Kazan Cathedral and a visit to the Yusupov Palace, once a residence of one of the wealthiest and most influential families in Russia. The Palace on the Moika River was built in the middle of the 18th century by famous French architect Vallin de la Mothe. The Palace impresses with magnificence of decoration and style as
well as its historical past. In the evening enjoy an optional farewell dinner at Restaurant Demidov.

ST. PETERSBURG-MOSCOW

Morning at leisure, around noon we go to the Moscow railway station and board the Sapsan high-speed train bound for Moscow. The train ride takes us through endless snow-cladded Russian landscapes along the River Volga. In the evening we arrive to Moscow and check in at Hotel
Mercure Arbat Moscow**** or similar.

MOSCOW

Moscow, the Mother of Russia, is a genuine Russian city with the Kremlin and its onion domed cathedrals. The dramatic changes over the last decade have made the city to one of the most dynamic metropolis in the world. The morning sightseeing tour includes all the highlights of the vast city: the Red Square with Kremlin, the Theatre Square with Bolshoi Theatre, Sparrow Hills with Moscow University and a visit to the famous Moscow Metro including the historical stations on the Ring-Line. In the afternoon is offered an optional excursion to the Kremlin grounds, where we see Ivan the Great Bell Tower and visit one of the cathedrals. The evening offers an optional ice-breaker cruise on the Moscow River to admire the illuminated centre of Moscow by night.

MOSCOW

The morning offers an optional excursion to Novodevichy Convent, a 16th century cluster of sparkling domes, one of the city’s most beautiful groups of buildings and full of history and treasures. The adjacent Novodevichy Cemetery is Moscow‘s most prestigious resting place after the
Kremlin. The balance of the day is reserved for an optional excursion to the Tretyakov Gallery with its outstanding collection of French impressionists. The evening offers an optional dinner at Restaurant GlavPiv Torg, located opposite to the former KBG-building and decorated with unique interior in Soviet “ministry style”.
