Russia: The World Cup
June 29-July 5, 2018

The FIFA World Cup is the world’s most widely viewed and followed sporting event, exceeding even the Olympic Games. It’s estimated that 715.1 million people, a ninth of the entire world population, viewed the final match of the 2006 World Cup. This soccer mega tournament happens just four times a year and to watch a game live from the stadium is a bucket list experience. Moscow will play host to the 21st FIFA World Cup in the summer of 2018. ER Members have the opportunity to witness a round-of-16 itinerary, including tickets to the knockout stage, which is the second and final stage of the competition.

Catching the match action is the main draw. But, equally as exciting is the opportunity to take in the famous sites of Moscow between the games. ER Members will have insider access to some of the city’s top venues, such as the Bolshoi Theater, where they’ll get a rare backstage glimpse. A privately guided walking tour of Red Square and the Kremlin will provide insight into the city’s fascinating history and unique architecture. One day, Members will take a high-speed train to St. Petersburg, Russia’s second largest city, for a guided tour of famous sites, which may include the Mariinsky Theater and Winter Palace. A multi-course meal at Café Pushkin in Moscow will give Members a taste of Russia’s culinary traditions. Housed in a Baroque mansion, this legendary restaurant on Tverskoy Boulevard serves the historic fare of the Russian nobility, such as dumplings stuffed with mushrooms and sliced whitefish.

Members will have plenty of down time to visit popular attractions such as the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Sin Basil’s Cathedral and the Tretyakov Gallery, and to enjoy the comfort of the Ritz-Carlton® Red Square. The five-star hotel boasts the first spa in Russia to collaborate with La Prairie and a rooftop lounge with sweeping views of the Kremlin and Red Square.
