Russian Rhapsody

Russia is a place where opulence, beauty and mystery merge, where surprises are to be expected and embraced. So instead of dictating your travel experience, Russian Rhapsody listens to your deepest travel desires and makes them happen. There are no set packages or limits on budget or schedule, just access to the finest hotels and venues across the country, a truly bespoke approach to trip planning.

For sheer splendor, St. Petersburg knows no competition. Set on the Gulf of Finland, Russia's most European city lures visitors with 300 years of impressive cultural history, which comes alive in dance, opera and classical music performances at the Mariinsky Theater. Further inland, the vibrant city of Moscow presents political fervor with a side of immense wealth. From dance performances at the Bolshoi Theater, to local theater performances at recently renovated Gorky Park, the cultural offerings cover a full, enticing spectrum.

With the opening in December of Russian billionaire Viktor Vekselberg's Faberge Museum in St. Petersburg, the city now has even more beautiful things to show off. Set in the 18th-century Shuvalov Palace in the city center, the museum holds one of the world's most valuable collections of Faberge objects.
