School Trips to Russia

School trips to Russia offer students the opportunity to explore the largest country on Earth. Russia spans eleven time zones, straddles two continents and is home to a diverse range of landscapes.

This is a multicultural, multiethnic country that has been hugely influential in both European and world history, making it a superb choice for a history or Russian language school trip.

Why visit Russia?

The fascinating history

Russia has a long and fascinating history. For British school groups, the opportunity to learn more about both the Russian Revolution and the Cold War within Russia itself is an unmissable opportunity.

Groups interested in the Russian Revolution will be able to visit key sites, such as the Yusupov Palace, where Rasputin was murdered. And they’ll gain a deeper understanding of the incredible wealth of the Russian Tsars with visits to spectacular palaces and the Hermitage Museum which holds the personal art collection of the Tsars.

For groups studying the Cold War, there is plenty of opportunities to learn more about the history, politics and culture of the Soviet Union on your school trip to Russia. You’ll visit Lenin’s Mausoleum and the House on the Embankment Museum, where you’ll see how high-ranking party officials lived.

And if you visit Moscow on your history school trip to Russia, you’ll certainly want to include a visit to the Kremlin, the seat of power in Russia since the capital was moved back to Moscow after the Russian Revolution.

The opportunity to get your students talking

For students who are learning Russian, there is no better way to get them talking than to take them to Russia where they can use their language skills with native speakers on an everyday basis.

Your Russian school trip to Russia will give your students the unforgettable opportunity to use their Russian skills to immerse themselves in the culture, leaving them with greater confidence and a real passion for all things Russian!

Explore spectacular cities

On your school trip to Russia, you can choose to base yourselves in St. Petersburg or Moscow.

St. Petersburg is one of the most spectacular cities in the world and has been nicknamed the ‘Venice of the North’ thanks to its palace-lined waterways.

Meanwhile, Moscow offers strong contrasts of ancient history and modern influences and provides an excellent visualisation of the changes that have occurred regularly throughout Russia’s history.
