Educational and cultural trips to the Caucasus & Silk Road

We believe that the educational process should not end when we leave the classroom. Traveling ourselves as children, we still remember the joy and excitement of exploring different countries. We believe that traveling abroad rewards inquisitive young minds with the amazing diversity of our planet and its people. We would like to offer you the perfect opportunity to take your students out of their normal environment and give them a rare, life-changing educational experience.

Itineraries overview.

Soviet history, Russian Empire and Russian language practice

Presently, arranging educational trips to Russia for language immersion and historical exploration is fraught with challenges. In light of this, we present an enticing alternative - school excursions to Georgia, Armenia, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan. These destinations offer a rich tapestry of cultural exploration intertwined with Russian and Soviet history.

In these destinations, students not only delve into the rich cultural heritage and history but also have the opportunity to practice their Russian language skills. Additionally, each programme can include a visit to a local Russian school, facilitating an exchange of ideas, cultural exchange, and perhaps even engaging in sport activities or games. Furthermore, if desired, students can opt for Russian language courses as part of the programme. These courses provide structured language learning opportunities

In Georgia, for example, students not only immerse themselves in its vibrant cultural heritage but also have the opportunity to hone their Russian language skills. Exploring historical landmarks in Tbilisi and Joseph Stalin's birthplace in Gori, participants delve into the shared histories of Russia and the Soviet Union. Lermontov's and Griboedov's sites and other culturally significant locations further enrich the educational experience.

In Armenia, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan, similar opportunities abound. Students can delve into the legacies of the Soviet era, exploring historical sites, monuments, and museums that reflect the region's ties to Russia and the USSR. In Uzbekistan, for instance, the ancient Silk Road cities and Soviet-era architecture offer glimpses into a complex historical narrative. Meanwhile, in Kazakhstan, the Baikonur Cosmodrome stands as a testament to the Soviet space programme's monumental achievements.

In Armenia, traces of Soviet influence are evident in its architecture, museums, and cultural institutions. Students can explore sites like Yerevan's Soviet-era buildings and the Armenian Genocide Museum, gaining insights into Armenia's complex relationship with the Soviet Union.

Each of these destinations offers a unique perspective on the intertwined histories of Russia, the USSR, and the region as a whole. By providing immersive educational experiences in these countries, we aim to broaden students' understanding of this multifaceted legacy.

Costs saving tips

We understand that some schools operate on very tight budgets and may not achieve initially planned number of student participants. Nevertheless, we still aim to make these trips possible. Below, we've compiled some cost-saving tips to help facilitate these endeavours. To save money, consider:
  • opting for shorter itineraries - average saving £50 - £75 per person per day;
  • collaborating with other schools to increase the number of participants and share costs;
  • travelling with only hand luggage (a cabin bag) - average saving £50 - £90 per person for flights;
  • excluding meals - average saving £15 per person per meal. Note, you'll still need to budget for food, but you can communicate to parents that it's an additional cost;
  • excluding master classes - average saving £15 per person per master class;
  • for trips to Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, consider excluding early check-in on the arrival day. Instead, opt for a flight that arrives at your destination around 8-9 AM - average saving £35 per person.


Our most popular routes displayed below have already been tested by a number of UK schools. We can provide school references upon request. The teachers who participated in the trips will be happy to share their experience with potential customers. In the meantime you can read our customers’ reviews.
