Unless you’re keen to consider travelling to Russia in the winter to experience the wintery landscapes that Moscow and St. Petersburg are famous for, our recommendation is to stick to the summer months (May, June, July and (only if you must) August).
Here’s our recommendation for a 5 nights / 6 days itinerary combining Moscow & St. Petersburg.
One could crunch it down to 4 nights / 5 days if it’s a purely leisure incentive.
This is an ideal itinerary for travel incentives for employees, dealers, distributors and doctors.
After lunch, we catch a high speed train to St. Petersburg. These ‘Sapsan’ trains have daily departures from Moscow at 06:45, 07:00, 13:30, 13:45, 15:00, 19:25, and 19:45.
We get to our hotel in St. Petersburg and give everyone the evening off to recoup, revitalise and reenergise!
There’s still more to see and do in St. Petersburg and her neighbouring environs. About 30 kms., 45 mins. away, lies the town of Pushkin famous for the Catherine Palace, a summer residence of the tsars, containing exquisite decorative objects, furniture, Russian and Western-European paintings, unique collections of porcelain, amber, arms and decorative bronze sculptures. This is, easily, a half day excursion.
Time for some retail therapy, upon our return to St. Petersburg, in the afternoon.
The best place to go for souvenirs to take back home is Souvenirs Fair located behind the Church of the Saviour on the Spilt Blood.
One can lay their hands on a huge variety of cheap souvenirs from Matroyshka dolls to Soviet Memorabilia.
After a lazy breakfast, time to head to the airport for a flight to Moscow and then onwards to New Delhi.
