Stroll through Moscow`s snow-covered Christmas stalls in search for delicious warming food or traditional hand-made gifts. See the Red Square covered in twinkling lights and magical Christmas trees whilst enjoying colourful parades and Christmas ballets at the world-famous Bolshoi Theatre. Or spend Christmas in St Petersburg, `the Venice of the North`, with its frozen canals, ice skating ranks, spontaneous Christmas concerts and snowy domes.
