Life in Moscow

During any season, at any hour of the day, mainland Europe's easternmost and largest capital Moscow thrills with its artistry, history and majesty. Moscow exudes prosperity and vigour through the diverse architecture, from the vibrantly painted churches decorated with golden domes to Stalin's carved-marble metro stations. Cosmopolitan in flavour, Russia's capital hosts an active and diverse expat community. Moscow always has something to offer from spacious green parks, work class opera and ballet, facilities for every kind of imaginable sport, and endless great food options. And better yet, it offers the perfect jumping off point for countless tourist destinations across Eastern Europe.

Life in St Petersburg

St Petersburg is Russia's grand imperial former capital and yet its inhabitants are famous for being much more relaxed that in the current capital Moscow. The city offers elegant canals and bridges in the city, pristine beaches, and an almost unrivalled treasure trove of art and culture. You can spend days in the Hermitage, seeing everything from Egyptian mummies to Picassos. Evenings offer world-class ballet, opera and classical concerts at the illustrious performance halls. Performing arts festivals pack out concert halls during the summer's White Nights, when the northern sun barely dips below the horizon. But don't be deceived. Every season has its own special celebrations and fine dining, world-class ballet and opera, and cafe culture are all part of the Petersburg way of life. The winter skies may be grey and the ground covered in snow, but the culture still dazzles and delights.
