Thanks to the intuitive interface and convenient navigation, you can easily find where to go, find an interesting excursion and even book a table in a restaurant.

Digital travel service Russpass modernized the site and launched a mobile application for iOS and Android. Now it will become easier for users to find information about attractions, excursions and tours, as well as select the most interesting routes for their travels in Russia. The sections on the website have been updated, new useful options have been added, and the number of filters has been increased to search for up-to-date travel offers. The portal is adapted for mobile devices.

“Today Russpass is one of the most convenient ways to plan a trip around Russia. When composing your route, you can see interesting sights in detail – a slide show is now available to users. In total, the service has already presented more than 3.2 thousand offers for tourists. These are ready-made tours, excursions and much more “, – said

Natalia Sergunina, Deputy Mayor of Moscow.

Choose a destination for travel

The main advantages of the new version of the Russpass website are an improved interface and easy navigation. Special cards located on the main page will help you choose a direction (region) for your trip. They display the most popular, according to the statistics of the Russpass service, directions for trips within the country. At the moment it is Moscow, St. Petersburg, as well as Crimea. The card on the far right allows you to go to the search for other regions. In addition, you can choose where to go, as well as find events, museums, restaurants and other offers using the search bar. It’s at the top of the home page.

An interactive map of Russia will also help to determine the route. It marks the popular natural and cultural attractions of each region of the country. For the convenience of users, the map is placed separately, you can find it at the bottom of the main page.

Choose an interesting excursion and book a table in a restaurant

In the updated version, all travel offers of the Russpass service are divided into four large categories: Places and Events, Routes and Excursions, Restaurants and Cafes, and Tours. They provide brief descriptions of attractions, excursions, routes, information on the cost of tickets to museums and exhibition centers, the average bill in restaurants and cafes, and other useful information. Here you can also see photos of individual locations and detailed maps.

And in order to find suitable offers even faster, you should use special filters. For example, in the “Routes and Excursions” category, set the desired ticket price, select a theme (historical, sightseeing, night excursions, etc.), indicate the type of event (for example, an individual tour accompanied by a guide). In the category “Places and Events” you can select data according to your interests – mark for display only museums, theaters, concerts or entertainment for children. In total, about two dozen filters are available in this category. Thematic blocks are easy to find, they are located in the center of the main page of the site.

Add to Favorites and buy tickets in one click

Now it is convenient to add your favorite tours, excursions, restaurants and attractions to Favorites. In order to view the saved content, you need to click on the “Menu” button (at the top of the main page) and select “Favorites” in the pop-up window.

On the pages of some attractions, it is easy to buy tickets to a museum, theater or concert with almost one click, and on the pages of restaurants and cafes you can book a table. Tickets to museums, exhibition halls, and restaurant reservations purchased on the Russpass website are saved in the user’s personal account. In addition, they are sent to the email specified when registering with Russpass. To enter your personal account, you need to select the “Profile” item in the menu.

Additional functions, such as booking hotels and buying air and train tickets, are placed in a separate section “Services”. You can find it at the top of the main page.

Another useful novelty will facilitate the work of companies with the service. Previously, in order to start cooperation with Russpass, it was required to fill out a large online form on the service website. Now it is enough to go to the “Become a partner” section and indicate only the TIN in the column that appears.

Mobile Russpass

The free Russpass mobile app for iOS and Android can be downloaded to your smartphone. It has the same functionality and set of options as on the service website. The information is available in three languages: Russian, English and Spanish. There are four categories in the application: “Home”, “Services”, “Favorites” and “Profile”. The menu contains icons to go to the interactive map and search.

All travel offers (attractions, tours, excursions, restaurants and cafes) are on the home page. It is easy to buy air and train tickets and book a hotel in the “Services” category. All favorite events and places will be saved in the “Favorites” section. It is planned that soon users will be able to view information on this page even when the Internet is disconnected. In the meantime, it is only available when the network is running.

In the “Profile” category, you can log in and enter your personal account. In the future, tickets to museums and exhibition halls purchased on Russpass, as well as restaurant reservations, will be displayed there. Thanks to the gadget, it is most convenient to present them when passing control.

Russpass was developed at the initiative of the Moscow Government. Project implementation is supervised by Moscow City Tourism Committee jointly with the capital Department of Information Technology.
