Top 5 reasons to visit Russia
- Amazing wildlife - bears, birds, whales and more
- Pristine Arctic landscapes
- Spectacular volcanoes
- Local cultures
- Older and more recent history
From the UK, there are connecting flights to Moscow from a number of airports, both London area and the provinces. Travelling via Moscow is the best way to reach the Far East, due to the historic way in which internal travel is organised.
We recommend staying over in Moscow for a day or so to see principal sites, such as the Kremlin, St Basil’s cathedral and the remarkable underground railway. Flights to the East are often overnight, so it is necessary to stay over, in any case.
Visitors coming from Australasia and the Far East may enter via Eastern cities, such as Vladivostok. Ask for details.
Other entry points to the country include St Petersburg, ideal for this city itself and points north.
Health requirements can be found on the Foreign Office website. It is important to check especially if there are any vaccination requirements for the places you intend to visit https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/russia
All visitors to Russia require a visa, although there are some exceptions for short stays of less than 72 hours. Please check with Russian authorities for latest information.
