Photography train adventure to Russia

This November join us on our photography adventure by rail through Warsaw, Kiev, Moscow and St. Petersburg...

Introduction

It might be cliché, but travelling is as much about the journey as the destination. With that in mind, we’re heading to St. Petersburg in a more timeless and romantic fashion- by train. Along the way we’ll see the scenery morph as we cross three countries and visit Warsaw, Kiev and Moscow. And the changing cultures and architecture of the cities we stop in will make an ideal subject for our photography exercises.

What makes this trip special?

Reaching a destination overland is more immersive and adventurous than going by plane. It feels like a real journey, with a better sense of how far you’ve travelled. It helps give context to the places you visit. Also, trains are comfortable, fun, sociable and usually have a bar.

Why Photograph Here?

Although not that far from the UK, Russia feels like a different world that will open your eyes and inspire your photographic creativity. In Moscow we’ll encounter tableaus that haven’t changed since the Soviet Union, while the lights, canals and grand buildings of St. Petersburg evoke the glamour of the Russian Empire. The cities that we’ll visit on the way- Warsaw and Kiev- are visually inspiring locations in themselves. On top of all that, the nature of the journey is a great opportunity for a travel photo story.
