WATERWAYS OF THE TSARS

May 19, 2020 | 13 DAYS

Our outside agent Wilma Wotten is currently organizing an incredible river cruise group to Russia in May 2020.

This monumental 13-day itinerary includes multiple days in both cities, touring such landmarks as Moscow’s Kremlin and Red Square as well as Catherine Palace in Pushkin and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. But, there is another side of Russia—quaint Golden Ring towns like Yaroslavl and Uglich that only a river cruise can provide. See opulent palaces, discover fortified monasteries and visit beautiful cathedrals. It is an unforgettable way to experience the history and culture of this unique and mysterious country. Prices starting at $7474.00 including air if booked and paid in full by July 30th.
