Imperial Splendors of Russia

View Cathedral of Christ the Saviour’s royal facade in Moscow

On this eight-night getaway, start in Moscow. Stride across Red Square, wonder at St. Basil’s swirling domes, and discover the city’s beautiful Metro stations. Inside the Kremlin walls, glimpse gilded crowns, carriages, and Fabergé eggs.

Next, visit Novodevichy Convent and its cemetery—the resting place of notables, including Anton Chekhov and Nikita Khrushchev.

Then, travel by high-speed rail to St. Petersburg. Here, marvel at the colorful and intricate Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, watch dancers warm up at the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet, and view masterworks at the famed State Hermitage Museum.

Cap off your trip with a visit to Peterhof, the palace of Peter the Great; and Catherine Palace, the splendid summer home of the Romanovs.
