Dear Traveller,
Autumn newsletter: a great year so far for Russian tourism
Autumn’s drawing to a close and what a summer it has been for Russia. The World Cup was a roaring success, not least because England reached the semi-finals. Whether you were there in person or watching on TV, you can’t have failed to notice that Russia was a big deal this year.
If you are the lucky recipient of a Fan ID, Putin’s announcement that you can return to Russia until the end of 2018 visa-free is a great opportunity to see more of this wonderful and diverse country. Cruise and ferry passengers booking an organised tour can also visit for up to 72 hours visa-free. If you’re not in possession of a Fan ID, or you’d like to stay longer, it’s a straightforward process to secure a visa and we will be happy to assist you.
Where would you go? Autumn’s a great time to cross Russia on the iconic Trans-Siberian railway – temperatures are still not below zero and yet, the crowds of summer have dissipated. Moscow is a popular destination in its own right, of course, and who can resist a trip to elegant St Petersburg? After a rocky patch and some political tension earlier in the year, Russia proved this summer that it welcomes tourists with open arms and gained their trust. We’re looking forward to arranging tours for many more of you in 2019.
But we’re also not limiting ourselves to Russia – we’re expanding into the Caucasus. Once off the beaten track to all but the most intrepid of travellers, more and more people are discovering the charms of Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. Each country has its own character and attractions, but it’s easy to travel between them to combine them into one holiday should you wish.
Perhaps you’d like to try out the thermal baths of Tbilisi, the Georgian capital, try the delicious wines of Kakheti or hike the breathtaking mountain trails of Svaneti? In Armenia, why not experience the vibrant capital Yerevan, with its many museums, cafes and markets? Or venture into the countryside to see hilltop monasteries overlooking azure lakes and vertiginous gorges? Azerbaijan is the most Soviet of the three; take a trip to see Baku’s Flame Towers or pop out of town to see the flaming hillside of Yanar Dag. There’s plenty more inspiration on our dedicated Caucasus website,
www.best-of-caucasus.co.uk, so why not take a look?
If you’re already planning your travels for 2019 and if you’re planning on heading our way, we’d love to help you build the holiday of your dreams, so why not give us a call?
