7 Days RUSSIA
Russia is a country full of adventure, culture and vast distances. A
continent, a multi-ethnic country and a vast land unites both Europe and
Moscow is the capital of Russia and the largest city in Europe in which both
Tsar rule and soviet communism gave the city its present appearance.
The Kremlin is located on a forty metre high hill above the Moskva River and
beyond its protective walls are numerous buildings, palaces, towers, squares and
churches. The city’s history began with the construction of the Kremlin
which lay at the very heart of the city and was for centuries Russia’s spiritual
and political centre.
A fascinating cruise travels across numerous rivers, canals and lakes within
the heart of the former Tsar’s realm, past monasteries and timber built
In Uglic the Dimitrijvskaija Church is crowned with blue, onion-shaped domes
that are adorned with stars. The red colour of the church is a symbol of
bloodshed and the incidents that once occurred at this place of death gave rise
to a time of confusion.
St. Petersburg, known also as the 'Venice of the North', contains splendid
buildings such as the Winter Palace and the Eremitage. Twenty four thousand
tree stumps were used for the foundation of Isaaks Cathedral that can
accommodate a congregation of fourteen thousand.
In Port Baikal is the modern Circum-Baikal train that takes a full day to
travel around Lake Baikal and is one of the most difficult sections of the
Trans-Siberian Railroad that travels from Moscow to as far as Vladivostok.
Russia is huge and its nature, culture, immense contrast and dramatic history
have formed the fascinating and colourful Russian soul.
