Russian Capitals



Peter the Great abandoned Moscow to create, in 1703, his new capital – a port on the Baltic coast and a ‘Window on the World’. Inviting the best European engineers, shipbuilders, architects, craftsmen and merchants to Russia, he initiated the impractical and expensive task of transforming a marshland into a great European city of canals, cathedrals and palaces – like Venice frozen in time and built on islands criss-crossed by canals and bridges. This fantastic escorted tour explores both Moscow and St Petersburg.
