Introduction

Russia’s cultural capitals are mysteriously romantic, a collection of far-flung destinations that we recognise from 19th-century novels like Doctor Zhivago and Anna Karenina. Cities untainted by tourism, the aristocratic neighbourhoods and labyrinths of cobblestone streets retain their historic imprints, transporting us back in time. From the bejewelled Fabergé eggs to the swirling colourful domes of St Basil’s Cathedral, this suggested itinerary to Moscow and St Petersburg is a historical and cultural celebration of Russia’s greatest landmarks and artefacts.

Trip Overview

Depart from Dublin to Moscow.

Your private driver will be waiting to transfer you to your luxury hotel in the heart of Russia’s capital. Your home for the next three nights, settle in, relax and enjoy a refreshing cocktail in one of the city’s rooftop bars.

Get to know Moscow.

Marvel at the intricate interiors of the domed wonder that is St Basil’s Cathedral. With your guide, wander through the labyrinth of vaulted chapels and admire its frescoed arcades. Continue to explore the Red Square and Bolshoi Theatre, the home of Russian ballet and opera.

St Basils Cathedral
Discover the powerful history of the Moscow Kremlin.

The epicentre of Russian politics, enter inside its fortress walls and explore the many buildings and Armory Museum. After your tour, we recommend visiting the 15th-century Arbat Street, one of the oldest surviving streets in the capital.

Kremlin, Moscow
Board the high speed train to St Petersburg.

Upon arrival, privately transfer to your luxury hotel on the banks of the River Moyka. Why not begin your four night stay with a decadent Russian afternoon tea, enjoying lashings of cake and champagne.

St Petersburg
Witness the famed Fabergé eggs.

Exploring the Fabergé Museum with your private guide, marvel at the world’s largest collection of Fabergé eggs. Admire these iconic artefacts as well as the endless collections of jewellery, porcelain and artworks.

“We recently travelled to Barcelona and Mallorca with the expert help of Oroko and will never book a holiday any other way again! The staff were so friendly and knowledgable and made the process of booking extremely easy. The travel pack was very impressive with our luggage tags, complimentary treats for the airport, and comprehensive guide to both areas with recommended restaurants which didn’t disappoint. I couldn’t speak highly enough of our experience with this company and would highly recommend to friends.”
