Poland River Cruises
The Volga River is the longest river in Europe and it flows through central Russia connecting some of the country's most iconic cities. On Russia and Poland cruises we depart London by train, an excellent way to travel in Europe as the journey is comfortable and the scenery is mesmerising. An exciting night spent on a sleeper train brings you to Poland's historic capital of Warsaw in the morning. Cruises in Poland and Russia begin with a guided sightseeing tour of Warsaw, giving you an immense opportunity to learn about the city's colourful past, especially during World War Two.
On the tour you will see parts of the Old Town including the impressive Castle Square which is dominated by Sigismund's Column, one of Warsaw's most iconic landmarks.
