With so many GCSE and A Level specifications covering the history of Russia and the Soviet Union from the late nineteenth century to the end of the Cold War, an Anglia tour to Moscow and St Petersburg is the perfect way to build your students’ understanding of this extraordinary and complex country.
Beginning in Moscow, visits to Red Square, the Kremlin and the Museum of Contemporary History, will focus on the nature of Stalin’s dictatorship and its impact on the Soviet people, plus the tumultuous events of the 1980s that led to the end of Communism, the Soviet Union and the Cold War.
After an overnight train journey, your time in St Petersburg will include visits to the Winter Palace/Hermitage museum, Peter & Paul Fortress, the Cruiser Aurora and the Catherine Palace, where the origins of Cold War Communism can be dovetailed with a study of the Revolutions of 1905 and 1917, plus the Museum of Political History.
