Then, visit the historic Uglich, Yaroslavl, home to one of Russia’s oldest monasteries, and Goritsy, once closed to western visitors. Journey to Kizhi Island, whose churches stand as silent testimony to the skills of Russian craftsmen, and the quaint village of Mandrogi. Conclude in St. Petersburg with visits to the State Hermitage Museum, which has one of the most extensive art collections in the world. Discover Peterhof, Peter the Great’s magnificent palace, and Catherine’s Palace to see the famous Amber Room re-creation.
