TWO CAPITALS TAILOR MADE PRIVATE TOUR
Welcome to Moscow, the mesmerizing capital of Russia! You will be met by your driver at the airport and transferred to the hotel Izmailovo Vega* (or similar); you can relax in your room or start an independent exploration. Situated just steps from Partizanskaya metro station, Izmailovo Vega is a unique hotel: surrounded by Izmailovo Park and Izmailovo Kremlin, its location puts the travellers in an ideal setting and it takes just 15 minutes by metro to get to the very heart of Moscow – to the Red Square and the Kremlin. Overnight in the hotel. TIP Make sure to spend some time on the Moscow Metro! A luxury underground made of marble and granite is not just a means of public transport, but a special place full of impressive artworks dating to the epoch of socialist realism.
Make sure to start your day with a hearty breakfast as a full day of discovering Moscow awaits you. You can choose to book optional excursions or explore independently. Take a walk on the famous Red Square, pop in to the Tretyakov Art Gallery or, for history buffs, visit the fascinating anti-nuclear facility Bunker 42 Cold War Museum: the only one declassified military object in Russia, which is located at a depth of 65 meters under the ground in the centre of Moscow! Overnight in the hotel. TIP Try the Hop on Hop of Bus for an alternative Moscow tour!
Enjoy your breakfast before checking out of the hotel. You will be transferred to the train station to catch the express Sapsan train departing at 1330. You will reach St Petersburg in just over 4h! Make sure to use your time on the train to plan your stay well or simply admire the passing landscape. On arrival in St Petersburg, you will be met by the driver at the train station and transferred to the Hotel Nevsky Grand* (or similar). Check in and relax in your room or start exploring the city! Overnight in the hotel.
Take advantage of your hotel’s location – just 10 minutes’ walk from the Hermitage! 8 minutes from the stunning Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood! And many more fascinating sights! You can prebook excursions with us or explore on your own! In the evening, try one of many restaurants that offer traditional Russian cuisine! Overnight in the hotel.
After breakfast at the hotel, enjoy another day in the Venice of the North. Beware though as Russians do celebrate April’s Fool day as well! Today you can pop in to one of many museums or take a trip to Pushkin town to see the famous Amber room in the Catherine’s Palace. If you are not a history buff, there are many unique places to visit like the weirdest museum in St Petersburg – the Kunstkamera, or the Russian Vodka Museum! Overnight in the hotel.
After breakfast in the hotel, take a stroll on the Nevsky Prospekt before being transferred to the airport for your flight home. *Alternatively you can choose to stay in the centrally located Budapest hotel in Moscow and Solo Sokos Vasilievsky in St Petersburg
