Cheap flights to Russia
Russia is a really, really ridiculously good-looking country full of really, really ridiculously good-looking people – but don’t just take our word for it, rush to Russia with the cheap flights on offer at Universal Traveller. Russia is also a really big country, in fact, it is by far the largest country in the world and offers endless attractions for adventurous visitors. Travellers heading to Russia should squirrel away some time and Rubles for a trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Running from Moscow to the city that borders Russia with China and North Korea, you can choose between first-, second- or third-class sleeper cabins on this landmark railway. Trekkers and climbers won’t be able to stay away from Mount Elbrus, part of the Caucasus Mountain Range in Southern Russia. Its summit attracts both experienced and novice climbers, but bring your winter woollies - it’s as cold as it comes up there!

Russia is gargantuan – there is simply no other way to explain the size of this vast country. Grab a ushanka hat and picture yourself photographed outside the St Sophia Cathedral in Novogorod, and trek down to Lake Baikal – many travellers actually step off the Trans-Siberian Railway tours here to explore the oldest lake on earth and the town beside it. Discover the jewel of Russia’s 'golden ring' at the Suzdal – a place littered with onion-like domed cathedrals and monasteries. The Kremlin is obviously a Moscow must-see alongside Hermitage Museum and St Basils Cathedral, but don't forget Kizhi Island where you can meet some of the Karelians, who have been living in the region since the 13th century and live in a manner that takes the best of the East and West cultures to create their way of life.
