Discover Russia and its Neighbours with the Go Russia Travel Experts
Welcome to Russia and Go Russia Travel Company! To many people, Russia is a very cold country, however our hearts and souls are warm and we welcome guests with open arms. Russians are amongst the most hospitable people in the world, with old traditions of friendliness and generosity... Come to Russia and experience yourself the kindness and cordiality of this giant land with the help from Go Russia travel experts.

Go Russia is the trading name of GR Travel Group Limited, a leading UK-based tour operator, specialising in holidays in Russia and other countries of the former USSR, Mongolia and China. Please read more about us below.


There are so many myths and stereotypes about Russia, and we are sure that right now - while reading this - you are trying to think and remember what you know about this country. Maybe you think that Russians drink a lot of vodka, wear fur hats, don’t smile much and are superstitious? Some of this is true! But, did you know that Russia is actually quite diverse too with over 185 different ethnicities? Or, that the delicious Australian dessert “Pavlova” was created in honor of the world famous Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova? Or maybe you remember that the first astronaut Yurij Gagarin, was Russian?

There is a lot more to Russia than just a few preconceived notions, but if you are wondering if Russians still wear fur hats or if old babushkas do exist, join us and discover yourself! We would like to show you the real Russia and to help you to break stereotypes, even if sometimes they turn out to be surprisingly accurate!
