Waterways of the Tsars
Moscow to St. Petersburg
On this culturally rich itinerary, you'll tour iconic landmarks such as Moscow's Kremlin and Red Square, and Catherine Palace and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. But you'll also experience the other side of Russia: quaint Golden Ring towns like Yaroslavl and Uglich that only a river cruise can show you. Visit opulent palaces, fortified monasteries and beautiful cathedrals, and discover Russia's unique history and culture.
See the swirling onion domes and stout towers of Moscow's Red Square. Share stories at the kitchen table of an Uglich family. Savor Russian caviar with your blini pancakes. Soak up the steam in a traditional banya in riverside Mandrogy village. Envision Peter the Great luxuriating in massive Peterhof Palace, then see how multiple families shared living space at a Soviet-era kommunalka. From Moscow to St. Petersburg, this 13-day voyage reveals the real Russia as never before.
