Join us for this once-in-a-lifetime journey aboard the M.S. Volga Dream, cruising Russia’s waterways. Explore the greatest treasures and mysteries of classical Russian culture, steeped in unmatched artistic, historical and architectural legacies. Spend two nights in St. Petersburg, Russia’s “window on the West,” the majestic legacy of the most visionary of czars, Peter the Great. From there, cruise six nights through the heartland of Russia, where everyday life goes on at the measured pace it has kept for generations. Golden-domed churches rise out of the early morning mist; quaint wooden villages and old-world farms dot the verdant landscape; and the gentle light of early autumn evenings gives an otherworldly dimension to the banks of Russia’s great “blue road” of inland waterways. Conclude the program in the fabled city of Moscow, the political and commercial capital of the world’s largest country and the cultural frontier between East and West.
