Explore Russia along the Volga river and you can see the very best of what this amazing country has to offer. The most popular Russia River cruises allow for time in both Moscow and St. Petersburg. If your vacation time allows for it, we suggest 3 night in each city. Along the Volga there are stops at villages and cities, each with their own treasures including some UNESCO World Heritage Sites. While in Moscow, visit Red Square, where you will see both St. Basil’s Cathedral and the Kremlin. It is worth seeing both inside. In Red Square you can also see Lenin’s Tomb. Just off of Red Square you will find Tverskaya Street with lots of shops that lead to Pushkin Square. In St. Petersburg you will visit Palace Square, St. Isaac’s Square and Cathedral and the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood. Also included on most river cruises is a visit to the Hermitage Museum where you can see work by famous artists including Michelangelo, da Vinci and Van Gogh just to name a few. You can take a Russia River cruise anytime between May and September. It is recommended you have 12 to 14 nights so that you can enjoy time in Moscow and St. Petersburg before and after the cruise.
