Russia’s long-awaited World Cup fixtures will be taking thousands of fans off the tourist trail and across 11 of the country’s top new sporting destinations.
Whether you’re travelling with your team or watching from home, The Calvert Journal is helping you explore with everything you need to know about these stunning host cities: whether that means finding the best bar, or reading up on a little Russian history.
In both English and Russian, and with videos, offline maps, and travel info, we’ve packed Explore Russia with highlights, reviews, and easy-to-follow instructions, making it the definitive guide to getting the most out of the 2018 World Cup.
You can also access all of our content on site as part of Beyond The Game: a special report digging into the best local cuisine, places to relax, and local adventures from people who know these cities inside out. Presented in partnership with Coca-Cola, the project will be covering all 11 host cities, released on The Calvert Journal site before the tournament kick-off.
