Russia coach holidays from Expat Explore take you to one of the most fascinating powerhouses of Europe. Visit Russia and other destinations in this part of Europe, and discover an ancient history, rich culture, staggering scenery and an abundance of sights! The largest country in the world, Russia offers historic cities, striking countryside, vibrant nightlife and hospitable locals. It is also a country of great contrasts; imperial splendour against vast tracts of wintry wilderness, and decaying Soviet monuments against vibrant and modern culture. Tours to Russia and its neighbouring countries are perfect for any type of traveller in search of a thrilling coach adventure – singles, couples and families are all welcome. Taking place on comfortable, modern coach buses that are fully fitted with every amenity you may need on the road, our tours include overnight hotel accommodation, breakfast and some other meals, included experiences and the services of an experienced tour leader. Plenty of optional excursions are also offered if you want to add even more to your Russian coach vacation.
The west of the country draws most of the attention from travellers, and the two major cities - Saint Petersburg and Moscow - are shaking off the Soviet past to become bustling metropolises with culture and attractions to rival Paris or Rome. St Petersburg was planned by Tsar Peter the Great as a “window looking into Europe”. Described by some as the “Venice of the North”, it spreads across hundreds of small islands linked by canals and arched bridges, lined with spires and golden domes, palaces and cathedrals. Unsurprisingly, Saint Petersburg offers almost unlimited opportunities for the keen photographer!
The Northern Explorer multi-country Europe tour visits St Petersburg with a three night stay. You therefore have two full free days to explore on your own or join Expat Explore’s carefully planned optional excursions - you can join a guided tour to the Hermitage, Peter and Paul Fortress and the Church of our Saviour on Blood, for example.
