Russia Summer Packages
Referred to as “miraculous and mysterious” by its own tourism department Russia is a country full of cultural and historical discoveries just waiting to be found. Visit the modern cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg, or the ancient cities around the Golden Ring; hop aboard the famous Trans-Siberian Railway, cruise one of the big rivers or wrap yourself in the warmth of a Russian holiday celebration.
Russia is known for long, extremly cold winters, however in the summer it is an entirely different story. Russia, particularly on its thriving cultural capitals of Moscow and St. Petersburg has a perfect climate in the summer, the season is short so Russians know how to enjoy every moment having numerous fun festivities and exciting events.
During Russia's white nights of summer the dusk is greeted by the dawn, so you can gaze at the Red Square, the Kremlin or stroll the the scenic destination well into night without streetlights.
The Stars of the White Nights Festival begins in mid May until mid July, and there is a fabulous celebration of opera, music and dance in the city's famous Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. During this time when the sun never sets, midnight and later are as good a time as any to plan a picnic or take a cruise along St. Petersburg's Neva River. Whatever you do--don't miss the Summer Palace, the home of Peter the Great in the mid-1700s.
