Volga River Cruises

The Volga is the longest river in all of Europe, flowing for 3,692 km through the heart of Russia. The Volga River has a symbolic meaning in Russian culture and throughout history it has been affectionately referred to as ‘Mother Volga’ in literature and local folklore.

Cruises along the ‘Waterway of the Tsars’ will give you a front row seat to admire the incredible and unique architecture of Moscow and St. Petersburg, such as the Kremlin and the Red Square on Upper Volga cruises. Russia is full of unforgettable sights and the Lower Volga is no different, taking you from Moscow to Astrakhan, where you can stop and admire the glittering Caspian Sea. Lower River cruises will also take you to Uglich, Yaroslavl, Kazan, and Volograd, where you can discover enchanting cathedrals and amazing scenery outside the big bustling cities.

Art and culture are thriving in Russia, with ballets, museums and galleries at every twist and turn. Immerse yourself in the grandiose culture by enjoying a show,or see what’s on the menu and taste some local delicacies. A cruise along the Russian waterways will be an experience you never forget.
