Russian River Cruise 2020

Captivating cities, imperial grandeur and spectacular scenery

Join us for a captivating Russian experience along the Volga river!

Your journey of discovery uncovers a wealth of authentic local experiences and hidden wonders as history and folklore play out beautifully on the Volga, Russia's proud waterway. 

Cruise between St. Petersburg and Moscow

Grand in scale, St. Petersburg embodies Russia’s imperial might. The city is full of architectural highlights, including the Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood, the Kazan, and Saint Isaac’s Cathedral. A visit to the Hermitage Museum, the former Winter Palace of the Tsars, offers yet more cultural immersion in the captivating ‘Venice of the North’.

Travelling east, you will visit the village of Mandrogi on the banks of Lake Ladoga. The landscape here is dotted with ‘izba’ houses, and you can admire the many local handicrafts which tell of the region’s rich folklore.

Moscow, Russia’s inimitable capital, boasts some of Europe’s most significant heritage sights, reflecting 800 years of turbulent history. Walk the flagstones of Red Square, marvelling at St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Mausoleum, and the unfathomable Kremlin. Or, visit the State Armoury to understand the military might of this proud country.

Your ship for this outstanding journey, the MS Rossia, is a traditional Russian river cruise ship. On-board you will enjoy comfortable furnishings and generous inclusions, such as meals, drinks with lunch and dinner, plus complimentary tea and coffee is available at all times.
