Discover Russia With Cox & Kings

Cox & Kings is urging travellers to discover Russia, a vast and complex country of majestic landscapes dotted with grand imperial architecture and relics of the Soviet era. The south of the country is characterised by immense stretches of plains and steppes while to the north are dense forests and tundra, broken up by networks of rivers, ancient lakes and soaring mountain peaks.

Most Cox & Kings’ Russia holidays focus on the two great political and cultural centres of St Petersburg and Moscow. St Petersburg, also known as the ‘Venice of the North’, is one of the most elegant cities in the world while in the capital, Moscow, historic buildings and ancient architectural treasures stand side by side with Soviet-era tower blocks and modern high-rise buildings.

For those looking to venture outside these two great cities, a cruise along the Volga river takes in numerous lesser known, but historically fascinating locations. Alternatively, passengers can traverse the entire country on a Trans-Siberian adventure aboard the Golden Eagle train.

The operator has added two new departures on its popular Russia art tour 'St Petersburg: Pictures & Palaces'. The expert-led six-day tour is now available on October 2 2016 and February 19 2017 and costs from £1195 per person. This includes international flights, departure and airport taxes, accommodation with breakfast and some other meals, local transfers, entrance fees and english-speaking guide throughout.

For solo travellers, Cox & Kings is offering savings of up to £50 on a seven-day 'Majestic Russia' trip when booked before July 31 2016. This tour takes in the best of Moscow and St Petersburg and costs from £1095. An eight-day 'Classic Russia' group tour normally costs from £995 per person but clients can save up to £100 per person, also when booked by July 31.
