Kirker Holidays still has some places available on its three escorted cultural tours to Russia taking place this autumn.

‘The Palaces & Galleries of St. Petersburg’ is a six-night holiday departing October 6 with prices from £2,098 per person based on two sharing and ‘Art, Music & Literature in Moscow’ is a five-night break departing October 12 from £1,996.

In the centenary year of the ‘ten days that shook the world’, the operator’s escorted seven-night ‘Romanovs and Revolution’ cultural tour retraces the events of 1917, from the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg to Lenin’s Mausoleum in Moscow. Guests will visit the resting places of the last of the Romanovs, see the locations of key events during the Bolshevik revolution, and discover some of the many legacies of the Soviet era which remain today. The itinerary also includes free time to explore the museums and monuments of these starkly contrasting modern cities.

Departing November 6, this tour costs from £2,995 per person based on two sharing and includes BA flights from Heathrow, seven nights’ accommodation with breakfast (four at the four-star Hotel Angleterre in St. Petersburg; three at the four-star Baltschug Kempinski in Moscow), high-speed rail from St. Petersburg to Moscow, four dinners and one lunch, all sightseeing, entrance fees and gratuities, and the services of a local guide and tour lecturer.
