A dreamscape where a midnight sun plays a striking backdrop to some of Nureyev's most soulful ballet performances. Where shy Matryoshka dolls retreat within themselves as if safeguarding an age old secret. Where Vodka flows as freely as water, and is so aptly named ('Voda' in Russian translates to water). Where towering domes of intricately designed cathedrals and sprawling museums coexist with stark parliamentary edifices. Where Tolstoy and Dostoevsky created compelling tomes of classical literature. Where crystal clear lakes are lined by pine rich Taigas. Where piroggis, blinis and pelmenis fill the most discerning gastronome with rustic delight. Where legendary Czars, enigmatic Anastasia's, romantic Rasputins intrigued and inspired millions...

Ravishing Russia. Where fairytales come to life.

Russia’s capital city is home to the famous Red square and the oh-so-familiar domes of the St. Basil’s Cathedral. Experience life Tsar-size in the Kremlin, a former residence of Russia’s iconic tsars. Visit the Armory Chamber and feast your eyes on one of the largest collection of Regalia in the world – from the crown jewels, tsar’s thrones right to scepters and coronation robes. Wind the day by catching a Ballet performance at the globally renowned Bolshoi theatre, where ethereal dancers and their elegant pirouettes are sure to leave you spellbound.


Take a lazy stroll along the historic canal lined up with towering marble palaces, exquisite boutiques and art salons. Gaze in awe at the architectural stylings of Admiralty, the Kazan Cathedral, the Church of Our Savior and the Anichkov Bridge. Visit the square of arts and lose yourself in the hypnotic swirl of Russian cultural. Explore the Hermitage museum one of the world’s leading museums on art – home to works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian. Or catch a midnight sun, and willfully lose all sense of time in this mesmerizing city of canals and culture.


Experience a cozy, quaint and quintessential rustic Russian countryside which remains frozen in time while steadfastly rejecting modernity to this day. Be transported to a land of wooden cottages mingling with golden cupolas that shyly cast reflections on sleepy meandering rivers flowing through its flowery meadows.

I travelled recently with my family to Singapore through Hansa Holidays. It was amazing working with Shubra who customized a package for us based on our requirements. She was very prompt in her communication and follow up and was always reachable even when we needed guidance in Singapore. Every detail of the trip was executed without fail .Interacting with her was an absolsute pleasure and would highly recommend Hansa Holidays . I cannot express my satisfaction with the travel agency with anything less than a perfect rating!! I will absolutely utilize their services again.
