History trips to Moscow & St Petersburg

For A-level students in midst of studying Russian history as part of their course, there is no greater way to learn than by visiting these two wonderful cities for themselves.

Combining a culture-packed visit between these two Russian cities is a great way to encourage history students to engage with their curriculum – whether your focus is Imperial Russia, the Russian Revolutions or the Cold War.

During your stay in Moscow you could visit Red Square, The Kremlin and the Museum of Contemporary History or perhaps you would prefer a trip to either the Cosmonautics or Gulag Museums. 

After an overnight train journey, your time in St Petersburg could include visits to the Winter Palace/Hermitage museum, Peter & Paul Fortress, the Museum of Political History or the Cruiser Aurora and the Catherine Palace, where the origins of Cold War Communism can be dovetailed with a study of the Revolutions of 1905 and 1917,
