Everyone would love to give their Russian bride that perfect date. A night they can remember and tell all their friends about with pride. Creating that is more of a challenge.
Here I will give you five great ideas, across a range of budgets, so that you can find one to suit you and your perfect other half.
Dubbed the “Venice of the North”, St. Petersburg has a lot to offer a lovestruck couple. There is so much to do and see.
During the day, Voltaire’s Library and the Kunstrucamera museum are a relaxing way to while away an afternoon and there is a long running tradition for newlyweds to hang their empty champagne bottles on the fence around the monument to Peter the Great. St Isaac’s and the Kazan cathedral are enchanting as the daylight illuminates the mosaics and artwork.
When night falls, the Palace Square is at its most appealing and a visit to the ballet followed by dinner and a stroll along the river is a perfect way to end an evening with your Russian girl.
A Cruise on the Volga River
A cruise on the Volga allows you to see the best of many cities in one trip.
During the day, you can disembark to explore the cities along the river and buy fresh local foodstuffs and gifts for your Russian date. In the summer months, it is possible to swim from the boat and enjoy the scenery and the music which plays from the top deck.
Lake Baikal – “the pearl of Siberia” is the oldest and deepest freshwater lake on the planet. It is populated with the huge variety of plants, animals and even people who have been completely uninfluenced by modern life.
There are a number of walks to take along the ecological routes around the lake where you can fully relax and lose yourself in the beautiful surroundings and the company of your love. Bliss!
The capital city has a lot to offer in terms of romance. A man can meet with lots of beautiful Russian girls here. It is a city steeped in history. Wide boulevards and buildings of as much historical intrigue as they have architectural beauty.
The Kremlins and Red Square are the usual place to start for tourists, both foreign and local. It remains the centre of modern life in Moscow, much as it was in the past and can offer a gateway to the museums, churches and libraries of the area.
If shopping is more your style, then Tverskaya Street is acclaimed for its boutiques and buzzing night life.
The longest continuous railway in the world, the Trans-Siberian railway covers 7 time zones and offers a number of routes to suit your tastes.

One route will even take you through the northern mountains of China and on to Beijing!
The trip is not for the fainthearted due to the nature of the travel, but the views are more than enough to make up for it. And a week in a confined space with your sweetheart can’t be all bad, can it?
