Russian River Cruises

Discover Russia, one of the world’s most fascinating destinations, on the waterways of the Tsars – the scenic rivers, canals and lakes which connect Russia’s two old imperial capitals, Moscow and St Petersburg

Explore historic and fascinating cities on a Russian voyage - Moscow with its wide avenues, famous Red Square and the Kremlin contrasting with the magnificently crafted buildings of St Petersburg and its Winter Palace set on a network of canals.

In Moscow see St Basil’s Cathedral in Red Square, the Kremlin, GUM Department Store, and the ornate Metro system. In St Petersburg enjoy the Hermitage Museum in the Winter Palace, Peterhof Palace with its Grand Cascade, and Catherine’s Summer Palace at Pushkin.

See the architecture of old Russia and the magnificent treasure troves of art in the famous Golden Ring cities. Visit mysterious Kizhi Island, the city of Uglich, and ancient Yaroslavl. Experience the countryside that has inspired generations of poets, painters and composers.

The Kiev to the Black Sea holidays travel the Ukraine along the River Dnieper, the third longest river in Europe, to the Black Sea. From Kiev with its domed St Sophia Cathedral and Pecherskaya monastery the ship passes through gentle rolling countryside dotted with villages and their church domes.

Entering the Black Sea the route visits Catherine the Great’s Odessa, the resort of Yalta, and the port of Sevastapol, noted for the famous siege.

A journey through Russia or Ukraine is more than a holiday. It is a unique cultural experience that will remain in your heart forever.
