Whatís it really like to holiday in Russia now?
These are just quick comments following recent concerns of British travellers who are planning to visit Russia in the near future.
Let’s be honest, some of the press we get here in the UK about Russia makes it seem a poor choice for a holiday now, when in fact that’s just about the opposite of what you’ll actually experience if you went.
Although the FCO warns of the possibility of anti-British sentiment at this time, the British Embassy in Moscow is not aware of any increased difficulties for British people travelling in Russia at this time. And based on our experience we have not seen any changes towards British tourists at all.
When you travel to Russia, what is going to be the case is that you’ll receive one of the warmest welcomes of any country in Europe. Don’t worry if you don’t speak Russian, a bit of sign language and mime goes a long way. The practicalities of your trip won’t throw up any concerns either. Russia’s main tourist areas are safe to visit. You shouldn’t have any problems so long as you apply your usual common sense. And our friendly and professional guides are always ready to help with their practical advice.
And last but not least – the Russian visas. There have not been any changes at all. All our tourists do get their visas and there have not been any delays in processing the applications. Our staff will assist
you at every step of your visa application process.

Please see below some comments from our tourists who have recently returned from Russia.
“We didn't notice any tension at all. The Russians we got to know and speak to were very friendly and open and kind. I don't believe these political situations affect the average person's perception of other cultures at all; we simply get on with our lives. I would not hesitate to visit again now; I am certain everything would be fine…”
“We found Russia to be welcoming and the people generally friendly and keen to make our stay a success…We did talk to our guide about everything in modern day Russia and how generally conditions appear improved for ordinary citizens and how unaffected they were by international politics…”
