The nine-day Easy Pace Russia with Christmas Markets begins in St. Petersburg and allows travellers to experience Russia’s Orthodox Christmas festivities in full swing. Clients will stand in awe of historic landmarks covered in a light, picturesque layer of snow. With a Local Expert, clients start their Christmas adventure by taking in the sights of St. Isaac’s Cathedral and Decemberists’ Square before travelling down Nevsky Prospekt for views of the great Cathedral of Kazan and the iconic onion-domed Church of our Saviour on Spilled Blood.
From there, clients can revel in a Signature Experience that will explore the spectacular Hermitage Museum, a repository of famed European art, located in the former Winter Palace of the Tsars. Once arriving in Moscow, travellers journey through each district to take in the holiday celebrations and decorations. A Celebration Dinner captures the spirit of the season with “soul-warming culinary masterpieces from across the country.”
