Each of our itineraries has unique offerings allowing for cultural engagement and community give-back. Here are some of the things that will make your trip to Russia special:

 

 

GLOBAL COMMUNITY GIVE-BACK

 

This morning ride the MCC – 34 mile long urban-metro railway orbital line that encircles historical Moscow. Opened to passengers on 10 September 2016, the line officially follows the Little Ring of the Moscow Railway built in late 19th century. In 3 years the old railroad was fully reconstructed to meet the needs of the modern city and to unload the metro system. Being a shortcut between the radial metro lines, MCC made the everyday trip to work much shorter for thousands of Moscovites. And encouraged people to use public transport instead of private car.
