With the world cup taking place in Russia during 2018, many people are wondering what they can do in the country between matches. With the cup taking almost a month, there are obviously a number of days where spectators will be free to wander the country, take in some of the sights, do things they enjoy, and generally learn more about one of the most interesting countries on earth. Here are a few things to do in Russia that pair well with the attendance to the World Cup 2018.
With matches taking place in 11 different cities, the opportunity to travel around the country is nearly irresistible. Right now there are a number of tour companies booking experience tours either for the areas surrounding individual stadiums, or for the entire tournament route. Most of these only run on days where there are no matches, but some are offering additional trips on days with matches that are scheduled to get out early or that people many want to skip out on.
If a tour group isn’t your style, high speed rail and updated signs in multiple languages are accessible along most of the major routes. In country flights are also currently filling up, giving travelers yet another way to enjoy the country. If you choose this option, you may want to hire a local guide or at least find English speaking areas in the cities you go to as a way to ensure you see all of most interesting monuments and events.
Gambling is a sport that almost everyone can take part in. With such high stakes, national and international companies are offering competitive odds for the World Cup and enjoying the spirit of competition that the cup is bringing to Russia. A number of companies are already taking bets, giving extra perks to those who lock in their choices early, ensuring that the early bird does get the worm.
There are two options for gambling on the tournament and both can make people very rich. The first is to place bets online, taking advantage of international odds. The other is to bet in person, which might end up working better for smaller bets with smaller odds.
Watch Classical Music Performances
One thing that Russia is well known for is their ability to produce classical musicians. Everything from ballet to orchestra is available in Moscow and a number of other cities. These performances often star world class talent at extremely affordable prices. Right now there are at least 100 different performances scheduled during the month of the World Cup. Traditional performances are also available, offering the same world class talent.
No matter what you decide to do in Russia during the World Cup 2018, you are sure to enjoy yourself in this thoroughly modern country. With the government putting in a large amount of effort to ensure the comfort of visiting fans, you will find Russia to be warm, welcoming, and more fun than you thought possible.
