Christmas in Russia

I am putting a Pilgrimage or sorts together to Russia for New Years and Russian Christmas. Although I do not have all of the details yet it is looking like the cost would be somewhere around $3,000 – $3,500 all inclusive.

The plan would be to arrive in Moscow on the 30th of December and spend New Years Eve there with tours of Museum of Icons and Christ the Savior Cathedral, Kremlin with Cathedral Square and Cathedral of Assumption, where royal weddings and coronation ceremonies used to take place, also Cathedral of Annunciation and the Cathedral of Archangel Michael (Mikhail).

On January 2nd we will board a train for St. Petersburg and visit the Palace Square with the magnificent Winter Palace, to St Isaac’s Cathedral. We will see St Peter and Paul’s Fortress, Nevsky prospect, St Basil’s Island, the famous Bronze Horseman, Smolny, and the city’s other highlights. Nevsky Abbey and Hermitage the Winter Palace (previously the residence of the Imperial family). It contains over three million exhibits and one of the best art collections in the world. The gallery is most famous for its collection of West European art, with paintings by Monet, Cezanne, Renoir, Picasso, da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rubens and Rembrandt.

January 7th is Christmas in Russia so we would attend Liturgy in one of the Churches of St. Petersburg and return to the US on the 8th.

If you are interested in the tour please leave me a comment or email me and I will put you on the list and keep you up to date on all of the details.
