Welcome to Russia

Ah Russia, we love you and your Bruskis. You gave us words that make us sound like mobsters: “Da!” “Nyet!” “Babushka!”. You also gave us palaces, artistic angst and giant Soviet statues. There’s beautiful St Petersburg, the most European city in Europe (yep, we’re calling it).

A city filled with canals, ornate palaces, candy-looking basilicas and streets that are straight out of Dickens. Except they’re out of Dostoyevsky.

Then there’s Moscow, the home of Soviet relics, the Bolshoi Ballet and an underground system that is designed to be a palace for the people.

Finally there’s the Trans-Siberian Railway. An epic journey through forests and Siberian villages, past dumpling wielding babushkas and the odd camel.

Yes, camel. Your last stop before Mongolia? Beautiful Lake Baikal, home to Russia’s other specialties: vodka and saunas.

Enchanting Mongolian plains and endless Russian steppe weave with mountains, forests, meadows, lakes and towns as you roll from Ulaanbaatar to St Petersberg on the world's most epic train journey, the Trans Mongolian Railway.

You can spend time, too, at Russia's Lake Baikal, the world's largest body of freshwater with its own unique species of seal, or go on Mongolian safari with yaks as your transport and gers your accommodation in true nomadic style.

Further wander the majestic Gobi desert and Mongolian mountains or delve into the myriad other historical sites of The Stans – including Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan.
