Kazan

A grand city tour of the old city, Kazan, an ancient Tartar capital located on the banks of the great Volga River. It was once the capital of the Khanate of Kazan, annexed by Russia under Ivan the Terrible who ordered the city razed and a White Kremlin built as a symbol of Moscow’s far-reaching power.

See the Tartar culture and spirit with the folklore show, “Tugan Avalim”, before sightseeing in Kazan and its own, smaller Kremlin. Enjoy lunch with a master class revealing the secret of Tartar cuisine.

Yekaterinburg

A city tour focusing on the final days of the last Russian Emperor, Nicholas II. Straddling Europe and Asia, this city was named after Peter the Great’s wife, Ekaterina or Catherine I. It’s here that the royal family was executed by the revolutionary Bolsheviks. The excursion will include a visit to the Church on Blood, the orthodox monastery built in memory of this historical event. Yekaterinburg today is dominated by steel workers, iron from here was once used to form the roof of the British Parliament and metal used in the construction of the Staue of Liberty’s frame in the United States. You will also visit the memorial of the royal family built on the border between Europe and Asia.

Tobolsk

In the past Tobolsk was often called Siberia City, a symbol of the region. The last Khan of Siberia, Uraz Mohammed, was captured by the cossacks here in 1587, and since then Tobolsk became the capital of Russia’s Siberian territory. This city is infamous for being the destination of the most prominent Siberian exiles such as Fyodor Dostoevsky and Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Grigory Rasputin, the advisor and “mystic” for the royal family, was also born near Tobolsk.

Novosibirsk

Your journey will take you to a region with great history with unique Siberian architecture and beautiful nature. Novosibirsk was decalred an official city in 1903 by Tsar Nicholas II, who thought of the wild idea of assigning it as Russia’s capital city. This didn’t work out, however. Today the city is recognised for academic science.
A sightseeing tour of the Railway Museum, Ballet and Opera House, ancient streets, the Ob River esplanade and other landmarks.

Irkutsk

Founded in 1661, Irkutsk was a distant fortress on the edge of the then-border of Russia. Within 50 years it transformed into a merchant city, mining gold to trade with China. At the end of the 18th century a merchant from Irkutsk established a Russian-American trading company, operating also in what is today’s Alaska but a territory of Russia years ago.
Before the revolution of 1917 the city was sometimes referred to as Siberia’s St. Petersburg, and in 1918 when the Imperial remnants known as the Whites were in full civil war with the Bolshevik Reds, Irkutsk was made the capital of “White Russia”. The famous white admiral, Alexander Kolchak, moved his losing government here and was subsequently shot in 1919.
A tour to the centre of the historical city including a visit to the Decembrist House, the “House of Europe”, the most beautiful streets of the city such as Karl Marx Street.
