What are the World Travel Awards?

World Trade Awards

Now in their 23nd year, the World Travel Awards were created to acknowledge excellence in the travel industry. As one of the most prestigious awards in the industry, they have been referred to by many as the Oscars of the travel and tourism industry. What sets these apart from the Oscars, though, is the fact that they are voted for by the public, and not just industry insiders. So a victory in the World Travel Awards is a clear indicator that a company is offering services and experiences that resonate with travellers.

More information

2016 was a fantastic year for Russian travel, with a weakened rouble it was as cheap as it had been for many years, while new and exciting experiences were being added all the time. It was also a fantastic year for Real Russia, as we were able to work with a fantastic community of partners and travellers to share the amazing experiences available across Russia, Europe, Asia and the whole of the Trans-Siberian railway. These successful relationships culminated in travellers to Russia, and industry experts, voting us ‘Russia’s Leading Travel Agency’ at the 2016 World Travel Awards.

Our aim at Real Russia has always been to share Russia, and the surrounding countries, with the entire world, while providing the best support for these adventures that we possibly can. There are so many incredible experiences to be had, from the beautiful architecture and canals of Saint Petersburg, to the unmatched natural beauty of Lake Baikal, that there really is something for everyone.
