Accommodation In Russia
St Petersburg's culture and history will astound
Compared to other European and Russian cities, St Petersburg is quite young, yet the amount of historical sites on offer is incredible. From the 18th-Century Cabin of Peter the Great and the stunning Rostral Columns, to the renowned St Petersburg State University, there's usually an attraction worth seeing nearby regardless of where you're staying.
Accommodation in St Petersburg reflects this love for history and 5-star hotels typically house you in century-old buildings. There are still modern rooms to be found in the city and plenty of budget-friendly accommodation that doesn't skimp on the comforts necessary for an enjoyable visit.
A park for everyone in Moscow
Russia's capital city of Moscow has gained worldwide fame for a number of reasons – think Russian Empire architecture, religious buildings and groundbreaking museums. However, one element of the city that shouldn't be missed is its extensive collection of parks. With more than 100 parks in the city limits, you're never too far from a stunning and fun greenscape.
The President Hotel and Warsaw Hotel are both located near Gorky Park, which has been entertaining kids for years with fair rides and roller coasters. You can also stay near the Ostankino Park and Estate's historic palace, statues and pavilions if you choose the award-winning D'Hotel or the Hotel Cosmos.
Soviet and Orthodox architecture in Yekaterinburg
Yekaterinburg, the fourth largest city in Russia, combines picturesque architecture with quirky monuments. The city's skyline has been influenced by religious and Soviet groups, creating a rather fascinating amalgamation of styles and colours. When you look out your room's window, it's easy to feel a part of two distinct worlds.
Unique monuments are also dotted around the city, such as the keyboard monument, located near the sumptuous Novotel Yekaterinburg Centre and the TransHotel. Stay amongst all the gorgeous buildings at the Grand Avenue Hotel and Premier Hotel.
