Cossacks, Tartars and Bolsheviks
Explore a lesser-known part of Russia from the ancient capital treasures of Moscow to the Golden Ring cities of Vladimir and Suzdal and follow the Volga River to Nizhny Novgorod and cosmopolitan Kazan.
Begin in Moscow, where monuments from Russia’s long and tumultuous history bear witness to the grandeur of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union.
Visit Vladimir and Suzdal, glittering jewels in the country’s ‘Golden Ring’ of ancient cities overflowing with traditional kremlins, monasteries, medieval churches and iconic onion-topped domes which have escaped industrialisation.
Uncover the technicolour churches and museums of Nizhny Novgorod at the confluence of the Volga and Oka Rivers, then travel to Kazan, the unique capital of the semi-autonomous Tatarstan Republic.
