Two capitals of Russia tour / 8D

forts & palaces tours ltd

►  Tours    ►  St Petersburg and Moscow tours   ► Two capitals of Russia

forts & palaces tours ltd

  Moscow and St Petersburg are considered the two capitals of Russia and both cities are strikingly different from each other but amazing in their own ways. Moscow is a major metropolis which is constantly changing and whose citizens are almost always in a rush. It is the political and financial centre of the country and home to the president whose residence is located inside the Moscow Kremlin. St Petersburg is known as the Northern Capital and the Venice of the North. It is also considered the cultural capital of Russia and has a much more European feel to it than Moscow.

  St Petersburg is often regarded as more beautiful than Moscow with its countless bridges and canals, stunning palaces and architectural masterpieces, all of which especially shines during the period known as the white nights when the sun does not set.

  On this tour to Moscow and St Petersburg you will visit the main treasures of both capitals, including the Red Square and St Basil Cathedral , the Tretiakov Gallery in Moscow and St Petersburg’s Hermitage . The tour is perfect for those coming to Russia for the first time and can be combined with visits to the Golden Ring or a trip on the Trans-Siberian. The tour is based on you arriving in Russia in one city and then leaving from the other, as this will save time and is the best option for seeing both cities. If you arrive and depart from the same city then one extra night at a hotel and an extra train (or plane) trip will need to be added.

  This itinerary is best for first visits to Russia for this particular duration of stay, but as this tour is completely private you can modify it according to your preferences and special requirements.

Top 7 Russian Palaces

But if you want to immerse into the epoch of pompous court receptions and to witness the grandeur of Imperial Russia during your tour to Russia , here’s a list of the Top 7 Palaces that Russia is fiercely proud of.

Winter Palace

Undoubtedly, the Winter Palace is a famous attraction of Saint Petersburg and a must-stop on your visit to Russia .

Being one of the greatest royal residences of the world, today this outstanding palace is one of the 6 buildings housing the Hermitage Museum.

Winter Palace

The site incorporates the largest collection of paintings in the world. There are over 3 million works of art and world culture artifacts, and if you only stop by each object for a minute or so, it would still take you several days to get through the main hall! It is not easy to comprehend, you have to see it for yourself!

It is claimed, that the color of the Palace has been changing throughout its history, from warm yellow to a more dense one and even was repainted in red brick color during the reign of Emperor Nicholas II.

Today the facades of the Palace are painted in an emerald-blue, white, and gold colors - nothing but a true treasure on the banks of Neva River, reflecting the majesty of the Russian Empire.

Did You Know? In the times of her rule, Catherine the Great was in need of her own hideaway to rest from public pressure. So she ordered the construction of a new wing of the palace, which she suitably named “the Hermitage.”

Saint Michael's Castle

The unusual architectural phenomenon, the Saint Michael's Castle, is located in the very heart of Saint Petersburg .

This place is claimed to be one of the oddest highlights of the city because of the legends and mysteries associated with it. It’s believed that the spirit of the emperor Paul I is still roaming around the castle's walls.

Saint Michael's Castle

All the facades of the Mikhailovsky Castle are different. The contemporaries called the interiors of the Palace a miracle of luxury and taste.

Designed by the outstanding architects and sculptors of that time, the ceremonial residence of the emperor also served as a museum of ancient, European, and Russian art. Later, it was transformed into the Army Engineers School and renamed to the Engineer's Castle.

Nowadays, the Mikhailovsky Palace hosts a branch of the Russian Museum. There is a permanent exhibition of the art gallery and the exposition dedicated to the history of the Castle.

Unusual Wall Hue As one of the castle's legends says, the walls got an unusual crimson color after Anna Lopukhina, Paul I's favourite, dropped a glove at a ball. The Emperor liked the color, which meant that the court began to give it preference. Later, Paul sent the glove to the architect as a sample and now we can the result of such life happenings.
