Plan your next adventure in Russian Federation with confidence by reading authentic reviews and receiving expert tips to enhance your travel experience.

Russia is a country that has long fascinated travellers. It's a land that's home to onion-domed fair-tale esque structures, epic train journeys, vast expanses of wilderness, and controversial politicians.

The country's main cities are filled with culturally powerful museums, stunning churches and monasteries, and plenty of entertainment in bars, theatres, and music venues. So, if you're planning on taking a trip to this fascinating nation, here are 20 of the best places to visit in Russia Federation.


Easily one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Moscow is a must-visit on your Russia holiday. Home to magnificent cathedrals, state-of-the-art museums and world-class art galleries, this awe-inspiring city is sure to leave you spoiled for choice.

A trip to the capital will also give you the opportunity to visit Lenin’s Mausoleum, which is the final resting place of the Soviet leader. The embalmed body of the former president lies within a glass sarcophagus and is an impressive sight to see.

For those with an interest in art, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts will provide plenty to see and explore. There is a huge range of European and Russian art on display here.

St Petersburg

The former capital of Russia, St Petersburg is a culturally rich, historic city full of colossal architecture. It's home to some of the most spectacular palaces and churches in Russia, as well as a world-class museum complex, all of which have been enshrined on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

It is also the country's cultural hub, a city of theatre, music and contemporary art. The 4.5km long high street of St Petersburg is a must-visit, lined with stately mansions and luxury hotels.

St Petersburg


Kazan is one of the oldest cities in Russia, located on the Volga River 820km away from Moscow. It’s the capital of Tatarstan, a secular republic with 115 nationalities.

The city is a peaceful place with a mix of Muslims and Russian nationals. It has mosques, Orthodox and Catholic churches and cathedrals, and a synagogue.

Its metro network is among the shortest in the world (only ten stations!) and it is surprisingly beautiful. Its stations boast frescoes, mosaics, and columns, and are reminiscent of those of Moscow and Saint Petersburg.


The Golden Ring

The Golden Ring is Russia's most popular overland tourist trail and is a must-visit destination for anyone who's looking to experience the country outside the hustle of Moscow and St Petersburg. This circular route features a range of UNESCO-listed monasteries, medieval wooden houses and a host of historical monuments.

The best time to visit The Golden Ring is in the warm summer months when you can enjoy sunshine and rolling green fields. In spring you'll get to see the meadows in bloom and in the short autumn months, the countryside takes on a richer colour palette of reds and oranges.

St Petersburg


The fourth largest city in Russia, Yekaterinburg is a bustling, yet understated and charming place to visit. It is a 'cultural capital of Russia', a cradle of sportspeople, an industrial hub and a transportation node.

It's also a great base to explore the Ural Mountains and its diverse landscape - crystal clear lakes, taiga forests, and mysterious rock mass. And, of course, there are a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites to be seen nearby!

A visit to the Church on the Blood – the site of the last Russian emperor and his family's execution – is a harrowing reminder of Russia's tragic past. And, of course, a ride 17km west of the city to the border between Europe and Asia offers you the chance to stand on two continents at once!


Olkhon Island is one of the most beautiful and spiritual places in Siberia. Its craggy mountains, lush forests and taiga are a true wonder of nature.

The island is home to the Buryat people, who practice shamanism. They believe the cliffs and sites of Olkhon to be the dwelling place of spirits of their pantheon, and many of them are considered sacred.

A day trip is the best way to explore this beautiful area of Siberia. The tours are a bit pricey but they’re worth it for the incredible views!
