Russia

Russia, the modern and mighty eastern powerhouse and land of fabled Tsars, remains an exciting destination shrouded in cultural intrigue and romantic mystique. The blending of Western and Eastern cultures results in a destination that is unmistakably one-of-a-kind. Robust and rugged, Russia’s natural beauty is one of its best-kept secrets. From the Altai Mountains to the Valley of Geysers, Russia’s mountain vistas, beaches, deserts, ethnic villages, volcanoes, and glaciers, contribute to making it one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

Key Locations

  • Saint Petersburg
  • Sochi
  • Moscow
Cultural exploration opportunities are plentiful in a country with a history this rich. Throughout Russia there are ancient palaces, well-preserved, stately mansions and beautiful cathedrals awaiting discovery. The Kremlin and Stalin’s bunker are must-sees for any western visitor to Moscow. St. Petersburg is home to the State Hermitage Museum, which is consistently placed in the Top 3 museums worldwide by tourism polls.
Many of these sites are also available to be used as private venues for MICE functions, gala dinners, theatrical performances, and team-building programs. Outdoor sports and adventure activities are popular in Russia, just as you’d expect from such a hardy country. MICE planners will find a number of unique things to offer in a program—from exhilarating bungee jumps to riding in military tanks, driving Formula One cars to ice golf,
there are a plethora of truly top level experiences available to add to the plan. Russia has a well-developed tourism infrastructure. The number of luxury, 5-star hotels, and modern conference facilities available will present a pleasant surprise to MICE event planners. Moscow is just a short three hours drive from stately St. Petersburg—which means a combined program is a genuine possibility, too.
