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.
