Sightseeing in Moscow:

Moscow is an amazing city with limitless possibilities for sight seeing and cultural tours. There are a few mandatory sight to visit while in Moscow. A day or two is not enough time to fully appreciate what Moscow has to offer but you can get a good feel for the city in a few days. The Kremlin, where the Russian government is headquartered, Red Square/Lenin’s tomb which is adjacent to the Kremlin, the Bolshoy Theater, and St. Basil’s cathedral at the head of the Red Square are a few important sights within walking distance. A bus tour can access more of the city.

Sightseeing in St. Petersburg:

St. Petersburg is a beautiful, vibrant city with a rich history. River boat and bus tours are a great way to visit some of the famous structures such as the Fortress of Peter and Paul, St Issacs Cathedral, and the Hermitage museum with over 3 million exhibits. A week could be spent in the Hermitage alone! Hire a tour guide that is well versed in the city’s history to give you an appreciation for what St. Petersburg has to offer.
