About Russia Tours

Russia is abounding with sights that travellers are always eager to see. A Russia River Cruise will ensure that you experience much of this astonishing country during your 11-13 day cruise. Sail through intricate waterways, passing through Lake Onega, the Svir River, and the Volga River as you enjoy the scenery along the way.

A must-see on any itinerary is Moscow, Russia’s capital. The Red Square in Moscow is truly the heart of Russia. This square was historically used both for punishment and celebration led by Russian politics.  St. Basil’s Cathedral has rested here since the 16th century.  The Kremlin, developed in the 15th century, is associated with historical and political Russian events. This architectural complex has palaces, towers, cathedrals, monuments, and government buildings within its red brick walls.  Also in Moscow is the Bolshoi Theatre, the shop-and-restaurant-lined Tverskaya Street, and the famous GUM Department Store, a glorious building housing a mall with exclusive properties.

The network of canals and stunning architecture in St. Petersburg are alluring views.  Walk through the Palace Square and stop by St. Isaac’s Cathedral, Catherine’s Palace, and Admiralty Tower. Admire the masterpieces by Da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Picasso at the Hermitage Museum and stroll through the landscaped gardens, pretty fountains, and gothic interior of the Peterhof Palace.

Also on a Russia River Cruise, you may see the Transfiguration Cathedral, Church of Prince Dimitri, and the market filled with regional crafts while in Uglich.  In the farming community of Goritsy, sail the calm White Lake and visit the Kirill Belosersk Monastery.  Then as you sail down Lake Onega, the largest lake in Europe, you will arrive at Kizhi Island and visit the outdoor Open-Air Museum of History, Architecture and Ethnography to learn about wooden houses, windmills and churches.  You may also want to visit the Church of the Intercession built in 1714.  As you cruise down the Svir River, prepare for relaxation as you stop at riverside settlements to watch artisans work or walk leisurely through the forest enjoying nature. 

Your program director will have many exciting activities planned to immerse you in Russian culture.  Learning about different types of vodka, cooking Russian cuisine, dancing to folkloric music, watching a ballet performance, or trying the art of doll-making are some examples.
