School trips to Russia
With a weaving-web of history, our school trips to Russia take in the most fascinating and inspiring aspects of Russia's most influential cities; Moscow and St Petersburg.
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 Basil's 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 art, culture and heritage that an Equity Tour is the only way to see the best that Moscow and St Petersburg have to offer.

Highlights of the Moscow Kremlin include the Assumption Cathedral, Ivan the Great Bell Tower and Tsar Bell.
One of the most recognisable squares in the world, Moscow’s Red Square is the centerpiece of Russia’s capital. Home to the Spasskaya Tower of the Kremlin and the imposing St. Basil’s Cathedral, this area of Moscow has played an important role in the country’s history for centuries.
Contemporary History Museum
The State Central Museum of Contemporary History of Russia boasts an extensive collection of historical items related to Russia’s political development over the last 150 years. The museum also features exhibitions on the fall of Communism and the 1905 Revolution.
Also known as Lenin’s tomb it is positioned in Red Square in the centre of Moscow and is the resting place of Vladimir Lenin.
Learn about the history of the Gulag, a network of labour camps that were positioned across the Soviet Union.
Museum of Political History
The building which houses the museum itself played a significant role in history. This attractive art nouveau mansion was originally built for Mathilda Kshesinskaya, the prima ballerina at the Mariinskiy before the Revolution, and Nicholas II's mistress before he became Emperor.
This stunning building was once the primary residence in St Petersburg and was the site of Grigori Rasputin’s murder.
Church on Spilled Blood
Differing architecturally from many of St Petersburg’s other structures with stunning mosaics and was constructed on the site where Emperor Alexander II was wounded and died in 1881.
Peter & Paul Fortress
The fortress was used as a garrison and a jail for political prisoners and there was also a torture-chamber. From 1721 onward, it housed a number of notable personalities.
Museum of the History of Leningrad
The Siege of Leningrad, also known as the Leningrad Blockade was a prolonged military operation undertaken by the German Army Group North against Leningrad.
One of the grandest museums in the world, the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg boasts a mind-boggling collection of over 3 million artworks. Partly housed inside the Winter Palace, it’s estimated it would take up to 11 years to view each exhibit on display for exactly one minute - that certainly gives an idea of the museum’s magnitude!
Piskaryovskoye Memorial Cemetery
The Piskaryovskoye Memorial Cemetery in Saint Petersburg is a sobering reminder of the 900-day Siege of Leningrad during the Second World War. About half a million victims who died during the Siege of Leningrad (mostly due to starvation and the cold) are buried in the cemetery’s mass graves.
