Russia Vacation

The largest country in the world, Russia is full of intrigue for the intrepid traveler. This sprawling nation is famous for its rich history, vodka and geographic diversity.

Russia Hotel + Flights

One of the best ways to score better prices when going on vacation is by bundling your flight and hotel bookings into a Russia Vacation Package. And with 16110 hotels on offer starting at $41 a night, you’ll have plenty of choice. You can save even more by booking your extras at the same time, like car rental and activities. If you plan on visiting the Kremlin while in Moscow, why not book a tour so you don’t miss a thing?

Your Russia Vacation Itinerary

  • Day 1-3: The largest airport in Moscow, Domodedovo International Airport is your gateway to the country. Pick your luggage up from the carousel, ditch it at your hotel and get started on some of Moscow’s most popular attractions. Red Square, St. Basil’s Cathedral and the Bolshoi Theatre are just a few.

  • Day 4-7: Jump on a domestic flight to Sochi. It’s a great base from which to explore the picturesque Black Sea Coast, Russia’s favorite seaside playground.

  • Day 8-10: A trip to Russia would be incomplete without a stay in St. Petersburg. Once the nation’s capital and known as the Venice of the North, there is plenty to see and do here. Check out the Summer Palace, Peter and Paul Fortress and the State Hermitage Museum. 

Russia Information

  • Join the locals as they celebrate Russia Day, held June 12 each year. Public events take place in all large cities across the country and include concerts and fireworks.

  • If you’d like to learn more about Russia’s history and get out into its more remote regions, Expedia has you covered. We have at least Russia tours and experiences starting at .

  • Want to spend a few days in the capital? Stretch your dollar (or, more accurately, your ruble) further with one of our Moscow Vacation Packages.

On the other hand, if you're stopping for a while in St. Petersburg, head to State Hermitage Museum and Winter Palace.

Or, if Novosibirsk is where you're headed, Novosibirsk Zoo is a well-known attraction that's not to be missed.
