To experience Russia only by land is to miss a major part of its character and history. Discover the soul of Russia along the shores of the Volga River. Follow the path of Peter the Great and sail from Moscow to St. Petersburg on a river cruise. Experience the rich cultures, traditions, and royal histories of these two legendary cities. And as you travel along the river, discover another side of Russia: its remote forested islands, vast lakes, tiny summer houses, quaint lifestyles, and pastoral landscapes. On your journey, meet the people who embody the true soul of this proud country.
