Peter the Great

It is hard to overestimate the importance of Peter the Great for the Russian history the course of which was radically changed during his reign. Though his name is inseparably linked with Saint-Petersburg, his most beautiful creation, the understanding of his legacy, his deeds and reforms requires visiting other locations, that are gathered in this 8-day tour, made with an utmost respect to the Tsar's life and work. Travelling from Moscow to Saint-Petersburg via small towns of Pereslavl-Zalessky and Serguiev Possad we will follow Peter's evolution from an enthroned youth surrounded by independent nobles defying the Tsar's orders to an Emperor, turning the then backward Russia into a leading westernized state. This program on the basis of 4* hotels with B&B in Moscow and Saint-Petersburg has both included and optional tours which gives you an opportunity to choose between more comfortable or slightly more intense pace of your tour. All transfers between the points of itinerary are included and will be well taken care of.

8 days / 7 nights
