Russia, the biggest country in the world, offers an abundance of cultural treasures, a richness of detail and a largeness of spirit that can make a devotee out of even a seasoned traveler.  

Explore the distinctive realm of Western Russia, the region that includes Moscow, St. Petersburgand the Golden Ring, whose iconic onion-domed churches, kremlin fortresses, world-renowned museums and lavish palaces dazzle and delight.  From its Czarist past – described by Tolstoy and Dostoevsky and set to music by Tchaikovsky – to its present-day political intrigue, Western Russia is complex and immensely rewarding.

“Have and will continue to recommend MIR to those interested in traveling to Russia and the former Soviet states.  MIR always does a superb job.  Tours are well organized and conducted by very knowledgeable guides.”
– D. O’Hare, North Syracuse, NY
