Our story

Enjoying Russian roots and many years of exploring exciting regions of Russia, a natural desire to share its diverse culture and the amazing travel opportunities propelled us to launch a travel company focused entirely on Russia. We then decided to focus on creating outstanding travel options that immerse travellers in Russia's culture, people and amazing natural beauty. ‘56th Parallel’ refers to the place where we embarked on our very first adventure in Russia. The exact location was Krasnoyarsk city in Russia, which is located on the 56th Parallel of the north latitude. Simple as that.
