World War II Museum & Poklonnaya Hill

  • Approximate Cost: $57 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 4 hours
  • Location: Moscow, Russia
  • When: Afternoon tour
Known to most Westerners as World War II, Russians call this the Great Patriotic War, and you’ll learn more about it from another vantage point at this fascinating museum featuring hundreds of exhibits like weapons, clothes, and wartime photographs. Victory Park on Poklonnaya Hill includes a large ensemble of monuments commemorating Russian war triumphs, especially that over Napoleon. During the French invasion of Russia in 1812, it was where the French general expected — in vain — that the keys to the Kremlin would be presented to him. Today the site includes a Holocaust memorial mosque, a church, tanks and machinery, and the country’s tallest obelisk.

Kommunalka Tour with Blini Tasting

  • Approximate Cost: $57 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 4 hours
  • Location: St. Petersburg, Russia
  • When: Afternoon tour
Enjoy a fascinating glimpse inside the life of a Russian family post 1917 revolution, when peasants were the new neighbors of university professors in living quarters known as Kommunalka, communal apartments with long central corridors and shared kitchen space. Today, this design still affects the way citizens interact and you can immerse yourself in traditional ways of life, along with enjoying conversation and traditional blini pancakes and tea.

Roots of Revolution: 100 Years Later

  • Approximate Cost: $69 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 4 hours
  • Location: St. Petersburg, Russia
  • When: Afternoon tour

Step on board the legendary Cruiser Aurora, the flagship of the Russian Navy, on this optional tour that also includes the Museum of Russian Political History. Your explorations begin on board the vessel that has anchored the waterfront of Petrogradskaya Embankment since 1948, a landmark symbolizing the shot that was fired to signal revolutionaries to storm the Winter Palace in 1917, the start of the Revolution. Step back in time on board for 500 fascinating nautical artifacts, then head to the Museum of Russian Political History, housed in a former mansion that was once a Bolshevik headquarters.  Learn about Stalin, the formation of the Soviet state and the social life and private life of the Soviet people.

Palace Folklore Show

  • Approximate Cost: $115 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 4 hours
  • Location: St. Petersburg, Russia
  • When: Evening show
There’s no better way to get acquainted with the soul of a people than through the arts, and you can learn about the rhythms of life here at a folklore show at Nikolaevsky Palace. Tap your toes to traditional songs, watch as skirts twirl wildly with centuries-old folk dances, and be wowed by ballet dancers, too. You’ll also feast like a tsar with canapés including caviar, vodka, champagne, and more.

  • Approximate Time: 4 hours
  • Location: St. Petersburg, Russia
  • When: Afternoon tour
Step into the shoes of the Stalinist era, with a perfectly preserved apartment belonging to Sergei Kirov, the leader of the Leningrad Communist Party. You’ll experience how the Bolshevik elite lived, see 1920s technology like the first soviet-produced typewriter, and see how schoolchildren learned in the 1930s with a re-created schoolhouse reconstructed above Kirov’s apartment.
