Traveling to Russia provides a unique opportunity to get acquainted with its history and culture. Russia’s vast terrain spans eleven times zones and two continents and contains some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. School groups most frequently visit Moscow and/or St. Petersburg, Russia’s 2 largest cities. Moscow, the capital of Russia, is home to the Kremlin, Red Square and St. Basil’s Cathedral. St. Petersburg was once the capital of Imperial Russia, but now it features art galleries and architecture. Top attractions include the Winter Palace, Hermitage Museum, Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood and the Peterhof Palace & Garden. A school trip to either Russian city is sure to give students memories for a lifetime.
