A superb Russian adventure in the profoundly historic cities of Moscow and St Petersburg - includes flights and intercity train transfer

For glittering palaces, onion-domed cathedrals, ancient-walled fortresses and cultural riches on an epic scale, there are fewer places on the planet as compelling as Russia’s two pivotal cities of Moscow and St Petersburg. Factor in sophisticated eateries, swanky vodka-fuelled bars, design-led hotels, upscale shopping and a world-acclaimed art and architecture scene and it’s not hard to see why these two urban hubs around 400 miles apart are so appealing.

Your six-night adventure kicks off in Moscow, the capital of Russia that also serves as its political heart. Staying at the sleek Courtyard Moscow Paveletskaya, you’ll be just a couple of metro stops from the mighty Kremlin, the iconic Red Square, and the splurge-worthy offerings at the glitzy GUM shopping mall. As you’d imagine, the Insta-worthy shots will come fast and furious, so try to squeeze in visits to Lenin’s Mausoleum, St Basil’s Cathedral, Bolshoi Theatre, Gorky Park, and the Armoury Museum (the Fabergé egg collection is divine).

Once you’ve had your fix of golden-domed churches and historical treasures, you’ll enjoy an intercity train transfer to St Petersburg - the dazzling metropolis that lures with ballet, bars, baroque bridges and lashings of imperial grandeur. Spending three nights at The Brothers Karamazov Hotel that was named after the final novel by Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky, you’ll be just a few blocks south of Nevsky Prospekt - the city’s main thoroughfare. The location couldn’t be more spot-on - within easy reach of the drop-dead-gorgeous Winter Palace, the incredible State Hermitage, the opulent St Isaac’s Cathedral Church, and the striking Peter and Paul Fortress.

Courtyard Moscow Paveletskaya (three nights)

Just a short hop from Paveletskaya Railway Station and only a couple of metro stops from the mighty Kremlin and legendary Red Square, this gleaming four-star city bolt-hole piles on the luxe. Staying in a spacious Deluxe or Twin Standard room, you can expect resolutely modish decor with earthy tones, an ultra-comfy bed (either king-size or twins), and sleek en-suite bathrooms with bathtub and shower combos. Thoughtful extras include a flatscreen TV with cable and satellite channels, tea and coffee facilities, iron and ironing board, and in-room safe. Elsewhere, there’s a rather versatile all-day bistro for Russian, Asian and European cuisine, Starbucks® coffee and grab-n go snacks, an excellent 24-hour fitness centre for workouts, and an outdoor courtyard area with a fire pit for post-sightseeing drinks. The hotel bagged a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

The Brothers Karamazov Hotel, St Petersburg (three nights)

For a chic-as-you-like sleep just a few blocks south of Nevsky Prospekt, this small four-star gem was named after the final novel by Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky (he finished it while living in the neighbourhood). You’ll be staying in a gorgeously decorated Double or Twin Standard room, which tempt with lashings of historic 19th-century decor, carefully selected period pieces, and modern must-haves like a private bathroom with shower, flatscreen TV, tea and coffee facilities, and complimentary Wi-Fi. There’s also an elegant restaurant for classic Russian fare and European cuisine, outdoor seating for anytime drinks, room service during selected hours, and a very clued-up concierge team who’ll be more than happy to help plan your day-to-day St Petersburg itinerary. The hotel is a Travellers Choice pick among the top 10 small hotels Russia on TripAdvisor.

What is a Smart Stay?

How are these deals different to your flash sales?

Some getaways are less about blowing the budget on a huge suite, and more about discovering a knock-out destination. When it’s the sights beyond the hotel walls you’re really interested in, it makes perfect sense to go for smart accommodation with great reviews, plenty of creature comforts and a price well below what you’d expect for the area.


And that’s what these stays are – ultra-affordable three- and four-star hotels chosen as carefully as our chicest five-stars. Whether it’s a well-picked base for London or a fly-and-flop break in the sun, you’ll find our Smart stays in savvy, accessible locations, usually with dinner included and other thoughtful extras that are the signature of a Secret Escapes holiday.
