Volga River Cruises in Russia - Uniworld River Cruises

There's a special waterway in Russia, one that has acted as an important trade route and source of life for the people of the region since medieval times. I'm speaking of course about the Volga River, Europe's longest and largest, on which you can enjoy an enthralling and enriching Uniworld Russia river cruise.

Uniworld’s Volga River cruises give you the chance to explore some of the most prominent attractions in the region. Imagine beholding the splendor of the Red Square, a hub of Moscow's development since the rise of the city in the 14th century. And no cruise through Russia is complete without a tour of some of the nation’s most astonishing buildings, museums and churches, including St. Basil’s Cathedral, the Kremlin complex, Hermitage Museum and more. Plus, with Uniworld you’ll also explore the smaller cities along the Volga that provide the soul for Russia. The sites of Mandrogi, Uglich, Yaroslavl, Goritsy and Kizhi Island might be less famous, but they’re no less noteworthy or memorable.

All of the above and more will be available to you on a Uniworld Volga River cruise through Russia. The experience will be unmatched – superb service, charming regional touches onboard and an exclusive group to join ashore to ensure a memorable vacation.
