Welcome to moscow! Moscow is a city of tremendous power and energy. Hulking gothic towers loom over broad avenues that form a sprawling web around the Kremlin and course with traffic day and night. The Soviet past looms large, but the city embraces capitalism with gusto.
St. Petersburg - Russia's great northern capital. Many fans of travel, both Russian and foreign, dream of visiting Russia's great northern capital. Founded by Peter I in 1703, the city was always intended to be great, but the modern St. Petersburg has outgrown its old boundaries manyfold.
Russia’s other historic square is the heart of its imperial past, as well as the host to pivotal moments in Tsarist Russia’s demise. On Bloody Sunday in 1905, palace guards shot dead hundreds of peaceful protestors here, sparking the first of Russia’s revolutions. Housed in the pastel green and white Winter Palace, the Hermitage museum contains one of the world’s most important art collections. On par with the Louvre, the collection is housed in what was once the tsars’ family residence.
PETER AND PAUL FORTRESS
Peter the Great built the fortress in 1703 to defend Russia from the Swedes, making it the oldest building in the city. Inside the fortress walls, the cathedral’s gilded 400-foot spire is one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks.
ST. ISAAC’S CATHEDRAL
It took more than 40 years to complete the world’s third-largest domed cathedral, now the dominant feature of St. Petersburg’s skyline. Climb up the 262 steps of the colonnade to get a spectacular panoramic view of the city.
This main drag is the center of the action (day or night) in Russia’s second city. Frequently described by Dostoyevsky in Crime and Punishment, the street is often compared to Paris’s Champs-Elysees and contains some of St. Petersburg’s most impressive imperial Russian buildings, including the Stroganov Palace and the Kazan Cathedral. Don’t miss the shopping arcade at Gostiny Dvor.
ALEXANDER NEVSKY LAVRA
Peter the Great had this Russian Orthodox monastery built in 1710 and named it after the Russian prince who defeated invading Swedes in 1240. Today the lavra still contains impressive baroque churches and a neoclassical cathedral. Most visitors go to see the graves of several of Russia’s greatest names, including Tchaikovsky and Dostoyevsky.
THE STATE MUSEUM
Housed in a former grand duke’s palace, the Russian Museum (as it’s known to locals) doesn’t get the attention that the Hermitage collection does, but in most Russians’ minds, it should. The museum is best known for its collection of paintings, which contains some of Russian art’s greatest masters, such as Kandinsky and Chagall. The park behind the museum makes a lovely spot to reflect on what tsarist St. Petersburg might have been like.

The ornate, golden interiors and recently reconstructed Amber Room of the 18th-century Catherine’s Palace at Pushkin (Tsarskoye Selo) offer a look into the extravagance of the Russian royal family.

Welcome to Russia!
Moscow. Cosmopolitan in flavor, Russia’s capital exudes prosperity and vigor. From Stalin’s carved-marble metro stations to the sprawl of modern business complexes, Moscow flaunts its ambition with a penchant for going over the top. It’s an all-night-party town whose days offer endless opportunities for those who can keep up. A merchant capital by birth, Moscow was fashioned for big spenders, and money has always made the wheels go ‘round here. Now counted as one of the world’s most expensive cities, the only possible limit is the size of your wallet.
Moscow Environs and the Golden Ring. In the 12th to 14th centuries, the Golden Ring cities were the most important political, religious, and commercial centers in Russia before Moscow usurped all power. Nowadays these ancient enclaves are perfect destinations for rolling back the centuries. A visit to their medieval convents, ancient trade chambers, and kremlins is like stepping into a living encyclopedia of Russian culture, complete with picture-postcard views of onion-domed churches set on the banks of the Volga River.
St. Petersburg. Serenity and reflection reign in this city. Tsars don’t rush—it would be undignified. St. Petersburg was founded as the new capital of the Russian Empire in 1703 by Peter the Great and still carries itself with austere regal grace. The city built on the marshy banks of the Neva River today attracts more tourists than anywhere else in Russia. A brilliant fusion created by Italian and French architects, St. Petersburg invites comparisons with Amsterdam, Venice, and Stockholm. The big attractions here are the pastimes of the nobility—artwork, classical concerts, ballet, and idyllic promenading in the 19th-century landscape.
Summer Palaces and Historic Islands. Several of St. Petersburg’s imperial summer residences have been meticulously restored to their original splendor, and the sheer opulence is stunning. Peterhof’s (Petrodvorets) park is Russia’s answer to Versailles, while Catherine’s Palace at Pushkin (Tsarskoye Selo) houses the legendary Amber Room. Lomonosov (Oranienbaum), a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Konstantine Palace have both undergone restoration and are great places for a summer stroll or picnic. The islands of Kronshtadt and Vallam showcase another side of the city’s history.
