History School Trips to
Moscow & St Petersburg, Russia

Russian history and culture continues to fascinate, frustrate and intrigue the West.

As the largest European country, Russia’s history from the early modern period through to the present day is simultaneously apart from and entwined with that of the West. Any history school trip to Moscow and St Petersburg will give students a true insight into European history across the centuries.

Students can learn about the devastating hardship that the First and Second World Wars brought to the Russian people, including the terrible sieges and battles around the key cities resulting in the deaths of millions. Combined with the beautiful palaces and churches which illustrate the events of the Imperial Age and the clash of Bolshevism and Communism, Russia promises a unique and memorable experience.

Through carefully selected visits, students should also be encouraged to consider current East-West Relations that have resulted from the Cold War and the collapse of Communism.
