Whether you’re in busy Moscow or the Russian countryside, hiring a local guide to take you sightseeing is one of those must-do opportunities.

If you’re in Moscow, there’s no better place to get acquainted with Russia than on a Russia heritage-history tour.

Russia Heritage-History Tour Continued...

Then there’s Sparrow Hills observation platform, on the slopes of the Moskva river – the highest point in Moscow. From here you’ll have a gorgeous view of the city, as well as the main building of the Moscow State University, the highest skyscraper in the area. Wrap up your tour with a trip to Novodevichy (New-Maiden) convent, where woman from the royal family used to take monastic vows.

To experience Russian life outside the city, we recommend heading over to Suzdal, one of the most visited Russian towns in the Golden Ring – a touristic route that includes some of the oldest cities in Ancient Russia to the North East of Moscow. It was once one of the most important cities in Medieval Russia, and it has retained much of its original form in architecture and culture. You’ll find no skyscrapers here! Instead, wander the gorgeous streets flowing out onto flowering meadows and rivers, try some traditional food, drink some meade, and take in the fresh air. While you’re there, be sure to check out the Museum of Wooden Architecture, Suzdal’s Kremlin, the St. Euphymius monastery, and the many churches dotting the streets.
