Moscow, one of the largest cities in the world, is the symbolic heart and soul of the country.

Our journey continues as we travel to St. Petersburg, capital of Imperial Russia. Dinner and overnight in St. Petersburg.
Day 5: There are not many cities in the world that can match the grace of St. Petersburg. Peter the Great founded the city in 1703, hiring Europe’s best architects, craftsmen and artists to build and decorate it. Spread over 100 islands linked by over 600 bridges, it is often referred to as the "Venice of the North". We start the day by celebrating Mass at St. Catherine's Roman Catholic Church, located at Nevsky Prospect, which houses a statue of Our Lady of Fatima and is also the oldest Catholic church in Russia. Then, our walking tour includes a visit to Kazanskiy Cathedral, home to the icon of Our Lady of Kazan, continuing by motorcoach on our panoramic city tour which includes the impressive Church of the Spilled Blood, St. Isaac's Cathedral, the Admiralty, the Palace Square and many more. Dinner and overnight in St. Petersburg.
Day 6: After breakfast, we will visit Peter and Paul Fortress, which houses the crypt of the Russian emperors. (If you've watched the movie "Anastasia" starring Ingrid Bergman, you can't help but say "Wow!") Then the highlight of our tour, the famous Hermitage, which houses many treasures from the Czars’ era and is located in the Winter Palace. Dinner and overnight in
St. Petersburg.
Day 7: Day excursion to Peterhof, on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland.
