2 month trip to Russia, moscow and st petersburg

2 month trip to Russia, moscow and st petersburg

Hello!

I will be traveling to Russia next week, I'll be in St Petersburg for a month and another month in Moscow. I will see the main atractions but I was wondering what else could I do given the fact that I'll have plenty of time.

Also, I would like to know what are the must-see during the holiday season in both cities, like christmas markets and so on.

And last,what other cities for little over-the-weekend trips would you recommend to visit? Kazan for example is a good option.

Keep in mind that I wiil try to see as much as I can but also keep it affordable. (Is it possible? lol)

Thank you, Juliana.

First question you should ask which visa you are planning to travel to Russia? if its a Tourist visa then it would be valid for only 30 days in most cases except if you are American !

I hope travelling next week the OP does have all the papers in order.

Kazan sounds interesting, especially as you will see a different culture;

Moscow and Petersburg do not have much in common either.

You can try any Golden Ring town around Moscow, too. I am particularly fond of Kolomna - it's not on the Golden Ring and is not so well-known, they have their own Kremlin and very famous sweets :)))

Have Sochi side kick, try skiing in Krasnaya Polyana :) It is the warmest region in Russia, even in mountains it is like -5C.

Vladimir is a very beautiful and easy to get to, it's rather close (only 2 hours from Moscow by train). The main attractions are very compact, so you don't need a hotel. And the prices are somewhat lower, than in Moscow.
