Russian proverb: “It’s better to SEE something once than to HEAR about it a hundred times”
Russia starts at the heart of Moscow – the Red Square with the colourful Russian Orthodox St.Basil Cathedral and Lenin’s mausoleum. Continue to the Palace of Facets in Kremlin, the former and the fabulous Armoury Museum with its priceless Imperial Treasures. Visit to the Tretyakov Gallery an art museum having the greatest depository of Russian fine art in the world. Stroll along the famous pedestrian street Arbat with its variety of handiworks, coffee shops and street artists. Drive to Sergiev Posad to visit 14th century Holy Trinity St. Sergius Lavra. Exploring St.Petersburg includes Petropavlovskaya Cathedral, Bronze Horseman monument to Peter the Great, stroll along the famous Nevsky avenue, visit impressive Isaac Cathedral, admire Art Nouveau architecture of the Northern capital of Russia. Visit to the Winter Palace and the great art museum “Hermitage”. The jewel of the tour – Peterhof Palace and Gardens Ensemble, called “Russian Versailles” with the Great Cascade of gorgeous fountains, UNESCO World Heritage site. At the end exploring the city from another angle – cruise along the Neva river and the channels.
Not all Russians drink Vodka :). But they all eat Borsch soup, this beet and cabbage red soup is a delicious belly warmer on Moscow’s colder days; Russian pie with meat or cabbage; Salted Herring with onions; Stroganoff stew. Russian pancakes – Blini are Russia’s version of the thin French crêpe and a staple on most Moscovian menus, typically made with buckwheat for savory fillings or white flour for sweet toppings. You’ll see accompaniments of smoked salmon, creamy mushrooms, sour cream, jams and condensed milk– to name a few– but the high-end, revered combination is a spoonful of red salmon or black sturgeon caviar.
