Sail into the heartland of Russia on an elegant river cruise during the endless summer light of the White Nights.

From Moscow, embark on a nine-night voyage aboard the elegant Volga Dream. Call at Uglich, founded a thousand years ago; admire frescoes in Yaroslavl, unscathed by World War II; visit two medieval monasteries in Goritsy; and explore the magical island of Kizhy, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spend three days aboard the ship in St. Petersburg during the White Nights, when the evening sky never darkens. Enter Catherine Palace before opening hours, see a ballet performance at the renowned Mariinsky Theatre, and tour the Hermitage Museum on an exclusive after-hours visit with a champagne reception and classical music. Enjoy a canal cruise past the city's beautiful pastel palaces and choose a visit to the newly opened Fabergé Museum or a guided tour of St. Isaac's Cathedral. Onboard classes in Russian language and cuisine will add to the pleasures of this voyage.

During an optional three-night prelude in Moscow, stay at the Ritz-Carlton, steps from Red Square and Saint Basil's Cathedral. Attend a performance at the historic Bolshoi Theatre, where you will meet one of the dancers; enter the Kremlin before public hours; and tour the beautiful stations of the Moscow Metro, known as "the People's Palaces."
