Russia exceeded my expectations by a mile. Moscow and St Petersburg are vibrant & full of history at every corner, the metro is by far the most beautiful underground system I’ve ever seen. It was like walking through a museum.
The high speed train called the Sapsan was amazing, we travelled in Business class from Moscow to St Petersburg in 4 hours. The service was brilliant, staff friendly – we even received a hot lunch with Russian wine…delicious!
The infamous Red Square and the Kremlin took by breath away. The highlight was walking around in St Basils and coming across the Doros group singing – you’ve never heard such heavenly voices in your life and it was a very special experience.
After my whirwind trip to Russia (my first time too), I decided I couldn’t really do it justice with words, so here’s ‘My Russia’ experience. Enjoy!
