School trips to Russia
With a weaving-web of history, our trips to Moscow and St Petersburg take in the most fascinating and inspiring aspects of Russia's most influential cities.
Admire the unique architecture of the Kremlin, and tour the palaces and cathedrals within its walls. Visit the renowned Red Square, and bask in the glory of the dynamic, colourful domes of St Basils' cathedral.
Spend time paying respects to the legendary patrons that shaped the country. The Lenin Mausoleum reflects on the life of the revolutionary leader; see where Peter the Great – the leader charged with modernising Russia – lived; and see where Anton Chekhov studied medicine.
Re-live the past by visiting Victory Park, the memorial dedicated to the conquest over the Nazis during their epic confrontation during World War II.
These fascinating cities are so rich in culture and heritage that an Equity Tour is the only way to see the best that Moscow and St Petersburg have to offer.
