Russia in two weeks in December

Jump to last reply

Hi all,
I am planning a two week trip to Russia starting December 16or 17 and ending on Jan 1st. I'll land and depart from Moscow.
My main question is - can I cover Moscow, st Petersburg and Kazan in these two weeks to some level of satisfaction? Or should I drop Kazan and instead bake in say Vladimir/suzdal? Given that it would be very cold, I'd focus on indoorsy stuff where I can - of course one would like to visit the main attractions - red square (st Basil's), and spilled blood, Peter Paul fortress in St Pete's etc.
What would be an optimal order? Fly into moscow, overnight train to Kazan, flight to St Pete and then last overnight train to Moscow again. I'm happy to travel platzkart class where available and sleep on a clean bunk but will spend on taxis (it is cold), and of course food.
Any thoughts would be great.
