Explore magnificent Moscow and enchanting St Petersburg with this city-hop escape, including breakfast, excursions, intercity train transfers and flights

Moscow

Experience two of Russia's most exciting cities on this culture-rich break, split between the illuminating charms of the capital, Moscow, and the majestic wonders of the port town of St Petersburg. Arrive in the capital for a sojourn at Novotel Moscow Centre, which welcomes guests with a modern glass exterior, contrasting to the surrounding historic streets. You'll take in the Red Square, the Kremlin grounds and the Tsar's Cannon on sightseeing tours, before embarking on a walking tour of Moscow's most iconic street – Arbat Street. Stroll the cobblestones and browse the charming stalls while soaking up the rich history.

St Petersburg

You’ll then hop onto a high-speed Sapsan train to St Petersburg, where you'll bed down at Radisson Sonya Hotel – a quirky bohemian find not far from the Summer Garden. This emblematic city is packed with architectural and historical attractions. You'll marvel at majestic squares and the Winter Palace (former Tsar's residence), and admire the Fortress of St Peter & St Paul. You’ll also visit the city’s most praiseworthy attraction – the sprawling Hermitage Museum, the second largest art museum in the world.
