This Monday we’re offering you…
ALL Russia Tours
This is strictly limited to the FIRST 10 PEOPLE.
We embark on a trip to one of the most remote regions on earth, and a place embedded in Soviet folklore.
- Ride a tank and shoot a Kalashnikov at Stalin Line
- Check out Dniprovsky Mine – the Soviet Prison camp operated between 1941 and 1954.
- Take a boat ride, relax in a Russian sauna, or simply drink vodka with some locals in Plescenitsy.
We’ll be exploring the city of Irkutsk, Siberia’s second city after Vladivostok, and one with an amazing history and culture of St Petersburg exiles and local ethnic groups.
- City tour of Irkutsk with its churches, museums, markets with of course a night on the town!
- Check out Peschanaya Village, an abandoned settlement and one of the most beautiful parts of the island.
- Enjoy a traditional Buryat (shamanistic ethnic group) lunch cooked on an open fire.
Formerly one of the biggest areas of the old Soviet Union in respects of tourism and home to both stunning natural beauty and also the fiercely nationalistic yet extremely friendly Chechen people. It doesn’t get much more adventurous and off the beaten track than this trip.
- Check out the main sights of Chechnya, including Tsoi-Pede. This “City of the Dead” is a medieval necropolis and the local legend has it that the necropolis was built in the Middle Ages.
- Visit Ingushetia and its breathtaking mountain scenery. Head to the castle complex of Vovnushki, one of the ‘Seven Wonders of Russia’.
- Classic YPT Moscow city tour.
One of our favourite and most popular tours takes you across nuclear wastelands, unrecognised states, Soviet time warps and more. Seventeen countries, five weeks – join the whole thing, or pop in and out as you please.
- Where to begin? Visit every single former Warsaw Pact country, a number of former-USSR soviets, and even an unrecognized country in Transnistria!
- Explore the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, Pripyat ghost town, and visit the ICBM Missile Base.
- Visit all the former Yugoslav republics, from Belgrade to Sarajevo.
