Sail into the heartland of Russia on a classic cruise along the mighty Volga River, stepping ashore in golden ring towns few Americans have visited. From Moscow, embark on an eight-night voyage aboard the elegant Volga Dream. Call at Uglich, founded a thousand years ago, to hear an a cappella choir inside a 15th-century church. Visit two medieval monasteries in Goritsy and explore the magical island of Kizhy. Enjoy stunning scenery as you cross Europe’s largest freshwater lake to arrive in St. Petersburg for a three-day finale during the White Nights, when the evening sky never darkens. Enter Catherine Palace, see a ballet performance at the renowned Mariinsky Theatre, and tour the Hermitage Museum when it is closed to the public. You may also choose a canal cruise past the city’s beautiful pastel palaces, or a visit to the newly opened Fabergé Museum. Onboard classes in Russian language and cuisine will add to the pleasures of this voyage. Optional Moscow prelude.
