RIVER CRUISES IN RUSSIA
Follow in the Footsteps of Peter the Great!


Sign up for the INSIDE SCOOP eNewsletter

A Russian River cruise is one of the best, if not the easiest and most enjoyable ways to explore the key cities of Russia.  A River cruise through Russia along the Volga allows for ample time to explore St. Petersburg and Moscow from the comfort of a modern river cruise ship. Most Russian river cruises spend 4 or 5 days in both of these extraordinary cities which allows for an up close and in-depth view of each city.

While Communism is for the most part gone, land travel in Russia as a tourist can at times be a bit daunting as there are still many travel restrictions to deal with.  A river cruise In Russia all but eleminates the majority of these restrictions and as a part of a small river cruise group, you will easily avoid the long tourist lines at the key sights of Moscow and St. Petersburg as well as other tops along the Volga.

On a Russian river cruise, you pack and unpack only once and will have plenty of time to tour. The Russia of today, while still an exotic experience in many ways, has done an almost complete 180 degree shift away from the highly rigid and restrictive culture and society that suffocated under communism, to a more open, welcoming and increasingly western oriented society. A Russian now owns the New York Nets basketball team, their bevy of beautiful female tennis players have captivated America’s for years and they own as many iPods as do we!

Note for 2016 voyages - Please be aware that many river cruise lines have reduced the number of sailings for 2016 and cancelled voyages on the Dnieper (Black Seas Cruise).  For 2016, Uniworld, Scenic and Viking will operate the more traditional Voyage of the Czar's between Moscow and St. Petersburg which you can find below.

Yes, we all think we know Russia — who among us hasn’t seen dozens of portrayals depicting Russia as our biggest threat, diametrically opposed to all that “we” hold dear. I mean, if you can’t believe what you see on the big screen thanks to Hollywood, who you can believe! Russia is much more than just nuclear missiles, shadowy spy organizations, and Boris and Natasha! It has also been the birthplace of many talented individuals whose gifts have enriched the world in a myriad of fields. Artists such as the painter Marc Chagall and classical musicians such as Shostakovich, Rachmaninoff, and Mstislav Rosropovich, who for many years conducted the US National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C. Ballet dancers like Rudolf Nureyev and Mikhail Baryshnikov from the fable Bolshoi Ballet, and writers and poets of the stature of Alexander Pushkin, Anton Chekov, Leo Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoyevsky. We may not have read any of their works but I’ll bet most of us have at least a passing knowledge of War and Peace, Crime and Punishment, and The Cherry Orchard. The list of talented Russians is almost endless.

Did you know that the Vikings using their long ships explored and traded down the Volga and other internal waterways or Russia? In fact, the name Russia is supposedly derived from one of these Scandinavian peoples, the RUS, who conquered and ultimately settled around the city of Kiev and the surrounding areas in the 9th-century. Of course we all learned a little bit about Russian history while in school — I’m sure names like Ivan the Terrible, first Czar of Russia, Peter the Great, and Catherine the Great, are all familiar. And who doesn’t know the sad history of the Romanovs, the last rulers of the Russian Empire, slaughtered down to the last family member during the Russian revolution. You will learn and hear much more about all the above on your very stimulating river cruise journey through Russia
