Dear Traveller,
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the Just Go Russia team!
It’s hard to believe we’re just a few weeks away from 2019 but what a year we’ve had. We trust your travels have taken you to places both far-flung and close to home.
When the run-up to Christmas is getting us down, we find that dreaming of travelling is a welcome distraction. The range of tours we offer is wider than ever. Russia was firmly in the spotlight earlier this year, thanks to the football World Cup. Thanks to FIFA, many of us here in the UK can add a string of other cities to Moscow and St Petersburg on the list of Russian places we’ve heard of. If you didn’t make it to Russia in 2018, why not treat yourself to a visit next year? Chill out on beaches of the Black Sea coast in Sochi, discover the culture and heritage of one of the country’s great cities like Kazan or Ekaterinburg or even book the trip of a lifetime to the wild and magnificent Kamchatka region with its geysers and volcanoes.
Alongside our Russia tours, we feature the Trans-Mongolian. Many a happy traveller has crossed Russia by train. It’s an epic journey whichever route you follow, and increasingly people are discovering the joys of a foray into Mongolia, once a hurried stopover on the way to Beijing. Its vast open spaces are perfect for scenic hikes, horseback rides and even excursions by camel. Why not stay in a traditional felt yurt and experience the lifestyle of Mongolia’s nomads? And by the way, please check our new dedicated website for travelling in Mongolia and China – www.china-and-beyond.co.uk.
Now we offer the Caucasus too. This captivating region popped up on our TV screens this year thanks to the delightful Joanna Lumley’s Silk Road series. In-the-know travellers realise that once the secret’s out, the masses will descend. Infrastructural improvements and a clutch of new hotels are starting to transform the region, so get there before it changes too much. The hospitality you’ll experience in Georgia and Armenia will equal anything you’ve come to expect from Russia. Slot in a supra, or local feast, and we know you won’t be disappointed.
Back to Christmas, and might we just add our tours could be a nice Christmas or New Year present for your family and friends. Go on, be generous, but don’t forget to book a place for yourself too.

Commemorate a hundred years since Solzhenitsyn’s birth this December
One of the most moving pieces of Russian literature is surely One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich. It bears the distinction of being the only one of Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn’s works to be published in the Soviet Union.
Is it time you visited Novosibirsk?
Unless you’re a regular visitor to Russia, you probably won’t have put Novosibirsk on your sightseeing itinerary. But that’s a mistake: though overshadowed by Moscow and St Petersburg, there are plenty of reasons why you should visit Novosibirsk too.
