summer family trip to russia

we are planning a 10 day summer trip to Russia with 2 children (7-5 yrs) We want to see St. Petersburg & Moscow. We are visiting friends in Novosibirsk, too.
Any advise on where to stay, map out an itinerary, add-on suggestions would also be helpful.

I have no actual itinerary suggestions but 10 days is not much time considering that you will either be taking connecting flights throughout Russia or long train trips. It could be really exhausting for all of you.

Like Adina, I know nothing about traveling between Moscow and Novosibirsk. But that's what is great about this board. Great questions (at least part of the time).

Flying between Moscow and Novosibirsk is not such a big deal - - and amazingly, not that expensive. Aeroflot has daily service in either direction. the main problem is that the east-bound flight is always a red-eye, and you arrive novosibirsk at 4:20 a.m. (5:10 a.m. in June) - - but at $254 roundtrip, it beats any other way of connecting the two cities.

And there must be an incredible jetstream - - 5 hours east-bound, but only 3 hrs 15 (actual flight time) west-bound.

Thanks for a fascinating question!

You will probably fly from Novosibirsk to Moscow or St. Petersburg. In St.Pete you can stay inthe following hotels " Europe""Astoria""Nevsky Palace" They are 5-4 star hotels. As for sightseengs... Hermitage of coure, Russian Museum( great collection of russian arts), Alexander Nevsky Lavra( one of the biggest and famous churches of Russia),Pushkin and Petrodvorets( towns outside St.Pete about 20 min away) and a lot more. If you are interested contact me directly.
