Russia River

Join a river cruise in Russia, starting and ending in either Moscow or St. Petersburg, where travellers will sail along the Svir, Neva and Volga rivers. See the stunning difference between St. Petersburg, the most "Western" city of Russia, and the brilliant capital of Moscow, where a host of preserved buildings and monuments can be found. 

On your river cruise, you'll stop in villages and towns of Uglich, Yaroslavl and Kuzino where the quaint and peaceful atmospheres provide an excellent contrast from the bustle of the two great metropolises.Just a few of the sights in these towns include the Church of St. Elijah the Prophet in Yaroslavl, the Kremlin and Church of St. Dmitry on the Blood in Uglich and the fully wooden Transfiguration Church on the island village of Kizhi.

In St. Petersburg, travellers may find they'll be visiting the majestic Catherine Palace, home to Catherine I, and the beautiful Peterhof Palace. In the evening, there may be a performance of traditional Russian ballet  or other folkloric performances which demonstrate the culture of Russia at its finest.

In Moscow, see the ever-popular Kremlin where visitors may get to go behind its walls for a tour of the cathedrals inside. A tour of the Tretyakov Gallery may also be available, giving river cruisers a unique opportunity to see the number one museum for Russian fine art.
