Budget Travel for Backpackers in Russia

Greetings to wanderlust seekers and adventurers! Backpacking in Russia is absolutely unforgettable and we’ve prepared for you a special programme on a budget so you will spend more on activities rather than on museums.

This package includes 2 days accommodation, visa support documentation (read more here) track leader, Catherine Park tickets who will show you the path to «untouristy» places.

The hostel you are going to stay in is in the city center and your track leader will meet you there in the morning.
