The world’s largest country, Russia is a melting pot of language and cultures, rich in history but constantly reinventing itself. Guests at our Russia hotels will discover world-famous Russian hospitality and an array of unique destinations.
From your Russia hotel, start discovering Moscow with a stop at Red Square, the cultural heart of Russia. Dominated by the spectacular St. Basil’s Cathedral−the 16th century onion-domed church that is the most recognized symbol of Russia−the square also borders the Kremlin, home of the Russian President, and Alexander Gardens.
If your destination is St. Petersburg, the Hermitage Museum and Winter Palace are must-see attractions. Stroll St. Petersburg’s main street, Nevsky Prospect, and then tour the spectacular Summer Palace and Gardens or Peter and Paul Fortress. From your elegant St. Petersburg, Russia accommodations, it’s all close by.
Don’t overlook Russia’s smaller cities, though. Irkutsk, known as “the Paris of Siberia,” is big on charm and convenient to Lake Baikal, the world’s deepest lake. Novogord is full of architectural treasures, and you can take a cruise down the Volga to Kazan, Russia’s “third capital.”
Russian appreciation for ballet and music is evident everywhere. Make it part of your visit for a taste of the real Russia.
