Visit Russia: A high-brow haven for culture lovers

Visit Russia, where artistic treasures are housed in ornate buildings and off-the-beaten-track adventures await. Still relatively little-visited, this is a country that offers authentic experiences in myriad ways. Take a tour of its stunning palaces, stand before master artworks or explore its musical heritage with a performance or two. With us, you’ll enjoy a first-hand encounter with Russia’s beloved traditions at a folk-dancing evening. You will be invited backstage at the historic Bolshoi Theatre. We will bring you to museums and galleries alike, and you can also sit in the audience for two incredible live performances. There is simply so much here to engage the cultural traveller.
