Discover Russia with a local English speaking guide

Discover Russia with a local English speaking guide

Russia is full of places to visit by yourself, as a couple or as a group. Some people have full confidence in everything they read in printed guides or online, while others prefer to rely on a local English speaking guide, an expert of the area, so as not to miss out on anything the land of the Tsars has to offer.

Public transport in Russia

Public transport in Russia

There's nothing better than public transport for discovering a country. In a country like Russia, where the trains are part of their heritage, it would be a pity to miss out on the experience!

Revolutions and violence: the history of Russia

The history of Russia is marked by the Bolshevik Revolution, which was led by Lenin. Later, Stalin's reign of terror and the formation of the Eastern and Western blocks marked the beginning of the Cold War. This continued until 1991, when Boris Yeltsin became the first president of the Republic of Russia.

Imperial Russia for a royal honeymoon

Russia is the biggest country in the world. So it's not really necessary to point out that you're bound to find something you like, whether it's towns that are filled with history or landscapes that go on forever.

Disabled access in Russia

Disabled access in Russia

Disability is still a taboo subject in Russia which explains why, despite recent changes to the law, the country's disabled population have problems getting around and find living in city centres a challenge. All the same, the Russian government is taking pro-active steps to improve the situation.

Russian cuisine

Russian cuisine

So although Russiais not world famous for gastronomy you can eat very well and cheaply there. The products are usually fresh and produced locally so taste "real" - why not try some Russian specialties?

Celebrities and well-known, powerful personalities in Russia

Just as in many other countries, it is in the world of entertainment that famous Russians have made their greatest mark, with the country's variety artists and sports stars the ones who tend to top the list of Russia's most famous celebrities. Very often, the wealth of a celebrity is in direct proportion to the degree of fame they enjoy.
