Overnight stay at hotel
After breakfast, first half of the day is at leisure. You can visit local markets for shopping.
In evening, visit to the famous Russian Circus.
The Russian Circus rose to world acclaim during the Soviet period, when acts from many Russian circuses united to tour the United States under the title, “The Moscow Circus.” During this time, the circus, which was already important became an even more prominent piece of culture, and a point of pride. Russian Circus traditions include clowning, juggling, acrobatics, contortion, and animal acts (especially bear acts, such as bears who juggle with their feet).
Stylistically, the Soviet circuses were different from their Western counterparts. Their acts were more focused on Eastern European culture, and tended to hold more narrative and be more dance oriented than their bespangled, action-packed contemporaries. This narrative style has recently become more popular with shows worldwide, with shows by companies including Cirque Dreams and Cirque Du Soleil.
In night, return to hotel and overnight stay.
Check out and have a transfer to the train station to take “Sapsan” train to St. Petersburg (2nd class).

There are few museums that can rival The Hermitage in terms of the sheer volume and quality of the art work on display and no visitor can leave without being utterly beguiled by the surroundings let alone the art. Encompassing numerous buildings including the iconic Winter Palace, The Hermitage is said to have so many pieces of art that it would take years to view them all. With around three millions exhibits it is easy to see why! Join the tour as a great way to get a thorough overview taking in some of the finest works of art on offer.
The original museum, now called the ‘Small Hermitage’, was founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great. Her collection and the museum swelled over the years to its present size and as we amble around the fabulous interior you get the opportunity to see some of the exhibits. See fascinating examples of prehistoric art and works from ancient Egypt and Greece. Be dazzled by the greats of the Italian Renaissance such as Raphael and Da Vinci and be bewitched by the classical beauty of Spanish masters like Velazquez and El Greco. Dutch and Flemish Baroque art along with fine art from France, Britain, Switzerland, Germany and Russia complement the classics. And for those preferring more modern art the likes of Renoir, Degas, Picasso and Kandinsky will not disappoint.
Check out and transfer to the airport by car/van/minibus (no guide). Board your flight & return home with happy memories!
