Weekend tours to St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities in Russia, and it is rightly considered the cultural capital of the country.  St. Petersburg is also often called an “open-air museum,” because its architectural monuments and ensembles annually attract huge flows of tourists from Russian and foreign cities.

If you choose a one-day tour to St. Petersburg,  the cost will include  a transfer, excursion programs, and transport support around the city. Tours lasting two or more days also include the cost of accommodation. There are budget hostels, as well as five-star luxury hotels, so you can always choose a tour according to your budget.



When choosing St. Petersburg as a tour  for the weekend, it is recommended to pay attention to the two-and three-day tours. So you will have time to get acquainted not only with the main sights of the city, but also visit Peterhof, located 30 km from St. Petersburg, founded as an imperial country residence and representing a magnificent architectural ensemble.

In St. Petersburg it is a must to inspect and visit - Nevsky Prospect, St. Isaac's Cathedral, Kazan Cathedral, Palace Square, Summer Garden, Peter and Paul Fortress, Admiralty, Savior-on-the-Blood, Strelka of Vasilyevsky Island, Hermitage, etc. There are many museums and theaters in St. Petersburg. As a rule, the cost of tickets   is not included in the tour price.




Weekend tours to Moscow

The capital of Russia, Moscow, is the main tourist center of the country. Not only the magnificent architectural monuments and ensembles, temples and cathedrals are concentrated here, but also unique museums, exhibition halls, theaters, restaurants and music clubs. Today there is a great   number of budget hostels and hotels in Moscow, and the system of flexible discounts for entrance tickets to most theaters and museums of the capital. Therefore, for example, weekend tours for schoolchildren are especially popular, especially   during the holidays.

The cost of the tour to Moscow includes hotel accommodation, transfers, travel around the city and excursion programs. Additionally, the price of the tour may include meals and  the cost of entrance tickets to museums.

As a rule, tours   include an inspection of such major sights of the capital as Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, Manezhnaya Square, the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, Yelokhovsky Cathedral, etc.



The programs for schoolchildren and students usually include visits to the Tretyakov Gallery, the Moscow Zoo, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, the Darwin Museum, the Oceanarium, the Nikulin Circus on Tsvetnoy Boulevard, the Grand Moscow Circus, the Armory, the Grand Planetarium, etc. Moscow is a city of great theaters: the State Academic Bolshoi Theater, the Sovremennik Theater, Lenkom, the Peter Fomenko Workshop and many others. Tickets for performances   should be purchased in advance.

Be sure to stroll along the Arbat, where today there are many souvenir shops and restaurants, feed the ducks on Chistye Prudy, admire the beautiful panorama of the city on the Sparrow Hills near the MSU building. If time allows, then you can spend a few hours in the museums-estates of Tsaritsyno and Kolomenskoye, where unlike the noisy streets of Moscow, there is always an atmosphere of solitude and tranquility. On certain days, manors     host classical music, jazz and other interesting festivals.
