Volga River Cruises
Discover the imperial cities and charming villages of Russia with a delightful cruise along Europe's longest river - the Volga. Russian river cruises enable you to witness many of the country's incredible sights, from the Moscow Kremlin to the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, all on one remarkable trip.
A relaxing cruise along the Volga is the perfect way to unwind and explore the fascinating cities of Russia at your leisure. Spend all day sightseeing from your ship before getting closer to the landmarks and attractions on shore excursions when the ship docks.
Each itinerary that cruises the River Volga has been created to introduce guests to both famous cities and lesser-known picturesque villages and towns. Many of our Russian river cruises begin in Warsaw, the capital city of Poland, before a train takes guests to Moscow to board the ship.
The vibrant Russian cities of Moscow, St Petersburg and Yaroslavl contrast against the quaint traditional villages of Goritzy, Svirstroy and the island of Kizhi, making our Russian river cruises a diverse and exciting experience.
Our Russian river cruises are complemented by rail travel, the perfect way to reach the ship without missing a moment of scenery along the way. Travelling by train is extremely relaxing and the perfect opportunity to chat to friends, partners, fellow passengers or simply indulge in a good book. At Great Rail Journeys we don't just see rail travel as a means to an end, it is an experience in itself which is why we use First Class services where possible.
