We are living in Siberia and plan to leave in November for France. Enroute we will spend a few days in St Petersburg and want to visit some nearby cities of interest e.g. Kiev, Minsk, maybe Volgograd. However it will be very cold and we are travelling with a 1yr old baby. Any advice on places to visit that are within a few hours flight of Moscow or St Petersburg? We are interested in the outdoors (which will be limited at that time of year), WWII history, culture and food.
