Your Destinations

Moscow
Moscow is the most populated city in Europe and the northern-most megacity on Earth. As such, it has served as a key geo-political and economical centre, both in Europe and the world.

Built in its heart, and facing one of the many meanders of the Moskva river, is the Moscow Kremlin. This fortified complex has functioned as the Seat of the Grand Dukes, the Residence of the Tsars, and currently is the residence of the President of the Russian Federation; it features four palaces, four cathedrals, and monumental enclosing walls and towers.

Around the Kremlin one can find many of the most important landmarks in Moscow, including the Alexander Garden, Saint Basil’s Cathedral, and the Red Square.

In this setting, and with the same grandeur in mind, the Metropol Hotel was originally built. The hotel is only a few blocks away from the Kremlin, Red Square and Moscow city centre. The Hotel Metropol was thought to serve as a multi-function building, to host important social and political events and feasts, and to accommodate visiting dignitaries. Eventually it was nationalised and housed offices for the growing Soviet bureaucracy.
St Petersburg
Often described as the Venice of the North, St Petersburg is a city defined by water. The mighty Neva River empties into the Gulf of Finland near the Fortress of Peter & Paul – the final resting place of the Tsars – and canals snake through the backstreets, passing stately townhouses. Explore this enchanting city and discover the many hidden treasures!

The centuries have been kind to the former capital of the Russian Empire – St Petersburg looks as grand today as when Peter the Great laid the foundation stones in 1703. From his cabin on Petrogradskaya Storona, the Russian emperor invited Europe's leading architects to fill the streets with extravagant palaces and elegant Baroque cathedrals. Today, the historic centre is preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage site, along with the grand palaces of the Romanovs at Peterhof, Pushkin and Pavlovsk.
