Moscow to St Petersburg holiday in Russia

As the former mediaeval citadel and capital of
Communism, Moscow is a beautiful city of gold
onion-domed churches that scrape the skyline
alongside Stalin's gothic Seven Sisters. With
the Kremlin, Lenin's Mausoleum and St Basil's
surrounding the historic Red Square, we enjoy
from the first day the fascinating history and
architecture this city has to offer. Even Moscow's
metro is a work of art, with bronze statues of
model citizens lit by ornate chandeliers and
there is plenty time to explore to wander
around the craft stalls on Arbat Street.
