11-Day Eastern Front Tour - 2020



The 11-day Eastern Front Tour takes passengers to the heart of the former Soviet Union to experience three of the most commemorated Russian battlefields of WWII: the siege of Leningrad, Moscow and the Battle for Stalingrad. This tour covers the most significant historical sites, memorials and museums related to WWII, as well as sites of Russia’s Great War and Revolution that dismantled the Tsarist autocracy and led to the eventual rise of the Soviet Union. We take a deep look at the political and military relationship between Stalin and the other Allied leaders in order to understand how their interactions immediately led to the Cold War after WWII.
