Would welcome some advise on my itinerary for an upcoming trip to Russia in June of this year.
My initial plan was to fly to Moscow, a few days there, a couple of days travelling around some of the Golden Ring and then back to Moscow to catch a train to St Petersburg.
Someone has mentioned that Kiev would be a good starting point and miss off the Golden Ring to see Kiev.
Appreciate this is a question which perhaps doesn't 100% fit the Moscow forum criteria but I would be interested to see if anyone has any recommendations on which trip to tag onto the Moscow leg of the journey.
FYI - We are a couple in our mid 30s, love travelling and sightseeing.
