I went for the RLC trip to Moscow, St Petersburg and Mandrogi in 2017, and it was a blast!!

We spent 10 days travelling around seeing all the highlights of these incredible places, eating the most delicious food and getting to practice our Russian every day, everywhere!!

Valya and Katya took amazing care of us 24/7, showing us everything from museums to night life to Russian banya! In fact, they got me so familiar with taking the metro and communicating with the Russians that I took some time off from the group to attend dance classes, and felt perfectly safe and comfortable doing so! Russia was definitely one of the most interesting places that I have been to!

If you are looking for a trip that is educational, fun, both relaxing and yet stressful (having to put your linguistic skills to the test), easy-going, full of adventure + plenty of surprises, joining their annual trip to Russia is deffinitely a must!

All you need is a bit of guts (to go up to random passerbys) to practise your Russian, a little tolerance for alcohol =) and a genuine interest in Russia and its people, culture, history.

I enjoyed myself tremendously and would definitely join another trip if there is a chance!

In spite of what western media tries to tell you, Russia is not always cold. It is sometimes also very hot. Similarly, you might find that the most avid drinkers of vodka you will meet may just be your travel companions =)

What you must pack for a trip to Russia is a comfortable pair of walking shoes. And your camera, because the viws can be very beautiful.

What you must try is the local and regional cuisine. Sure, you may be able to find macdonalds and subway, but what is the point of flying half a day to eat that? Be bold, be curious, be hungry! Summer is the time for ice cream. If it looks good, eat it!
