Volga River

Plus, instead of just marveling at the masterful palaces of Catherine the Great or snapping away at the famed domed buildings in Red Square, you can observe the rest of Russia as you sail through the small towns lining the Volga River. Here you can really understand the life and culture of Russia. From Moscow to St. Petersburg, and everywhere in between, uncover the rich history of this great country on a river cruise.
