Best things to do and see in Russia

What popular events take place in Russia?

Visitors to Russia can join the many exciting festivals that take place throughout the year. If you book flights to Russia during the summer, you can attend the spectacular White Nights Festival in St Petersburg. The White Nights Festival is a summer celebration that features a range of live performances around the city, including ballets, operas, and classical concerts. The festival runs from May into July and celebrates the light summer nights in St Petersburg, where it barely gets dark during these months. Meanwhile, if you book Russia flight deals to Moscow in April, you can attend the International Film Festival, showcasing independent films from all over the world, or the Golden Mask Theatre Festival, which is held in Moscow around the same time. Russia also has many winter celebrations, including the Russian Winter Festival, held in Moscow and from December into January. Those who attend this event will see Moscow lit up by thousands of fairy lights. Also, do not miss visiting Gorky Park to see incredible ice sculptures. The festival also involves traditional live performances and features food stalls selling regional delicacies.

Is Russia known for a specific cuisine?

Russian cuisine is hearty, delicious, and perfect for keeping warm during the winter months. When you book flights to Russia, you can expect to find many restaurants serving traditional dishes, like soup, pastries, and stroganoff. One famous Russian recipe is borscht. Borscht is a beetroot soup made with fresh beets, onions, cabbage, and carrots. It has a rich, salty flavour and is usually served with cream mixed through it. Other popular soups include the likes of Shchi, made with fermented cabbage, Solyanka, made with sausages, ham, and winter vegetables, and Ukha, a fish broth. Russian cuisine also features a lot of savoury pastries and dumplings. You will find meat-stuffed pastries, known as Pirozhki, and meat dumplings, called Pelmeni, all over Russia at market stalls and in restaurants and cafes. Stroganoff is another classic Russian dish that involves stewing beef in cream with paprika and lemon juice. Many modern Russian restaurants also serve lighter, more varied cooking styles, with plenty of salads, chicken, and fresh seafood on the menu. For those with a sweet tooth, Russian desserts such as bird’s milk cake and Napoleon cake are a must-try.

What can you do and see in Russia?

Russia has a fascinating history, and there are tons of fantastic monuments and attractions to keep visitors thoroughly entertained. When you book Russia flight deals to Moscow, you can view Saint Basil’s Cathedral with its famous onion-shaped spires. There are also plenty of stunning architectural sites in St Petersburg and the Volga District, such as the Kazan Kremlin and the State Hermitage Museum of St Petersburg. If you’re looking for a family day out in Russia, attractions like the Sochi Amusement Park or the Limpopo Zoo are ideal. Meanwhile, if you plan to travel outside of the cities, you can take a trip out to see the beautiful Ganina Yama Monastery located in Yekaterinburg. This charming wooden church is also a famous historical site and the location where the Romanov Royal Family were buried after their execution during the Russian Revolution of 1917. The monastery is situated in a scenic woodland area and is a poignant place to visit for anyone interested in Russian history. The site also contains a chapel, shrine, and a small museum dedicated to the Romanovs.
