Imperial Waterways of Russia (2013) : River Victoria
Moscow to St. Petersburg - 13 Days
The Volga River, Europe's largest and longest waterway, holds a special place in Russian history and in the hearts and minds of the Russian people. An important aquatic "highway" since Medieval times, the Volga has long served as a major route of trade, settlement, and conquest. Peter the Great sailed along the Volga from Moscow to St. Petersburg approximately 300 years ago on a quest to bring Russia out of the Dark Ages. And centuries' worth of Russian music and literature reflect the people's deep feeling for the river.
Now it's your turn to discover the rich history and traditions along the imperial waterways of Russia. Your journey starts in Moscow, where you'll stand in awe of world-famous sights such as Red Square; the Kremlin; and iconic, onion-domed St. Basil's Cathedral. Cruise along the Golden Ring to some of Russia's most beautiful cities-including Uglich and Yaroslavl, which are known for their white stone churches and gorgeous monasteries. Visit UNESCO-designated Kizhi Island, and experience daily life in Russia with visits to the Children's House of Arts and Crafts, and Mandrogi, a reconstructed Russian village. Your journey ends in enchanting St. Petersburg with visits to Catherine's Palace and the Hermitage Museum, and a viewing of a breathtaking ballet, all of which will bring you up close to the rich traditions and royal history of Russia.
Who will enjoy this cruise: Travelers looking to experience a grand tour of Russia including some of the world's finest art and distinctive architecture, as well as visits to tucked-away villages with Old World charm.
