Day 2: St. Petersburg
A land of 11 time zones and an epic history. Luckily, we have a local guide to start us off on the right foot. Anything called the Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood has got to be worth a look (and it really is). You'll see it on today's driving tour (plus oh-so-many bucket list items). You won't be bored in St Petersburg, for sure.

Dig into breakfast with your pinkies raised. You're going on a guided tour of the Hermitage Museum that spans six palatial buildings, including the epic Winter Palace. Ah-maze! You won’t want to miss this. Next: (window) shopping, chowing and grooving your way down Nevsky Prospect, the capital's main street.

March through the greats on today's tour, including the Moscow University, Red Square and St Basil's Cathedral (aka the capital's technicolor sandcastle).

Down we go for a guided tour of the not-so-mundane Moscow Metro. If you are picturing the Piccadilly or Central Line in London, think again. Not even close. We’re talking chandelier-lined stations, each one more decadent than the last. Next: visit Lenin's tomb. Keep the history lesson going with an optional guided Kremlin Armory tour. The Russian capital's been known to set the stage for nights to remember. Home of vodka, remember?
