For a tailor-made holiday with a difference, Russia offers a wealth of larger-than-life wonders and sheer, shameless grandeur, both above and below ground. Go from St Basil’s Cathedral and the blue hues of Catherine Palace to historic churches and the glittering eggs of the Fabergé Museum, and from the Bolshoi ballet to a metro system which is surely one of the most decadent in the world.
Both Moscow and St Petersburg are full of unique attractions and merit a few days exploring their many sights, while further afield, the Golden Ring offers the chance to see a different side of the country and experience its rich religious history. You can also find some serenity even in the cities in peaceful landscaped gardens. After a day’s sightseeing, relax with some hearty pelmeni dumplings (Russia’s national dish) and a warming glass of vodka, or try the kvass, a traditional drink made with fermented black or rye bread, herbs and spring water.
