Russia

Follow in the wake of Peter the Great on a voyage from St Petersburg to Moscow on the mighty Volga River, the longest river in Europe.

Utilising the Neva and Svir rivers allows the full voyage between the two iconic cities and affords a startling transition from the great urban landscapes to wide, open landscapes, with forested islands, vast lakes, tiny summer houses, quaint lifestyles and pastoral backdrops.

The rich cultures and history of the two cities provides the bookend to the huge open spaces in between, from world-class museums to breathtaking swathes of the true Mother Russia, and the chance to meet the people in rural locations as well the cities.

Other notable destinations along the way include the UNESCO World Heritage site of Yaroslavl - older than Moscow itself - and the Kirillo-Belozersky monastery, as well as Kizhi island with its precious collection of wooden churches and the museum village of Mandrogi, on the banks of the river Svir.

WHO GOES THERE: AmaWaterways, APT, Scenic Tours, Uniworld, Viking River Cruises.
