Leisure travellers have endless options to enjoy a trip overflowing with culture and history. One can visit former homes of illustrious artists, writers and poets, like the storied country estate where Tolstoy was born, lying 12 kilometres southwest of Tula and 200 kilometres from Moscow; or the enchanting Pushkin Country House Museum, where the poet wrote several masterpieces. Another bucket-list experience could be a journey on the legendary Trans-Siberian Railroad, being the world’s longest iron way and connecting Moscow to Vladivostok in the Russian Far East, it is one of the best ways to explore the country.
Russian sites and cities
The capital of Russia, Moscow, is a vibrant centre teeming with art and history with the Kremlin and Red Square at its heart. Meaningful monuments honouring fallen heroes will move you, performances of the highest levels of precision will blow you away at the Bolshoi Theatre, a key venue, while the capital's museums, atmosphere and architecture will impress you. The city’s colourful streets boast hundreds of churches, gigantic cathedrals and magnificent fortresses.
Russia’s imperial capital, St. Petersburg, also frequently attracts our clients, who charter a private jet to the city of the Tsars for multiple reasons, from business trips with top executives in the oil and gas trade sector or partners from the aerospace industry, to cultural weekend trips and family holidays.
Many other iconic sites and cities in Russia are worth travelling to, such as Yekaterinburg, the political capital of the Ural Mountains and Russia's fourth-largest city; Sochi, a popular Black Sea resort which hosted the Winter Olympics in 2014; or Vladivostok, one of the most important commercial ports and naval bases in Russia.
Events in Russia
Tradeshows, conferences and festivals animate Russian cities all-year-long. Private jet travellers fly to Moscow for the spring fashion week for instance, which attracts celebrities and fashion designers from all corners of the globe; or the Moscow International Film Festival (MIFF), attended by stars and experts of the film industry. The International Festival of Snow and Ice Sculpture takes place in Krasnoyarsk, the third largest city in Siberia and its Magic Ice of Siberia international competition inspires artists and art lovers; while the annual Chekhov International Theatre Festival, named after Russia’s most eminent playwright and author, Anton Chekhov, brings performers from all over the world to the stages of fantastic shows held in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other regions of the country.
