Why travel to Russia in winter?
Take a winter holiday in Russia and you’ll see the country in completely different light. When the snow is thick, the tourist crowds in Moscow and St Petersburg are thin - many Russia travel aficionados say winter is the best time of the year to visit Russia. A Russian winter tour in Moscow or St Petersburg will take you on enchanting wanders down snow-covered cobbled streets, and through squares and parks lit up in celebration of Christmas and New Years. Beyond the city, explore breathtaking frozen lakes, mesmerising ice caves, winter sports, ski resorts and even the chance to see the Aurora Borealis on a Russian Northern Lights tour.
