Moscow & St Petersburg History School Trips & Tours - 20th Century History
Russia has played a pivotal role in many of the key events of the 20th century and has a rich history that spans back even further. Pupils will see the majestic legacy of its Tsardoms and Empires, and learn about the conversion to Communism and the creation of the Soviet Union too.
Moscow contains so much that vividly evokes the society and politics of the Soviet era, enabling a breadth of study options and the grandeur of St Petersburg gives a vivid insight into Russian society and the events of the revolutions of 1905 and 1917.
