Russia River Cruises
Russia is one of the world's largest and most fascinating destinations to visit. Awe-inspiring architecture, unique cultures and scenic waterways should be seen to be truly appreciated. Russian holidays reveal the mysteries of historic cities and sites that make the country so appealing. One of the best ways to explore many highlights is on a Volga River cruise that sails serenely over the waterways of the Tsars, linking two of the diverse cities of Moscow and St Petersburg.
When cruising across Russia you can relax in the comfort of your ship as you admire striking scenes that unfold before the windows, giving a unique insight into the extensive landscapes that sweep across the country. Opulent palaces, lavish monuments and fine art are just some of the treasures that can be explored in Russia on your holiday.
Moscow is renowned for its spacious avenues that play host to epic sites such as the Kremlin, St Basil's Cathedral and the spectacularly ornate metro system. St Petersburg's Hermitage Museum, which can be found in the Winter Palace, and Peterhof Palace are also among some of the exciting sights to be discovered when you enjoy the charms of Russia on a holiday with Great Rail Journeys.
