Moscow, a city with palaces alongside business towers, royal gardens in view of shopping districts, and historical landmarks as public transportation hubs, Moscow is truly a city unlike any other. More than eight centuries of history have shaped this metropolis into the bustling, populous, vibrant destination it is today.
St. Petersburg is the gem of Russia truly worth exploring while in the country. Founded by Tsar Peter the Great back in 1703, it is now called the City of Tsars because of its magnificent architecture and eventful history. Some also call it the Venice of the North, as the city is traversed by numerous canals and features 342 bridges!
