Sail the mighty Volga River into the heartland of Russia, stepping ashore in Golden Ring towns few Americans have visited.

LIMITED OFFER!Book now and take $750 per person off the rate above.

Begin your exploration of Russia with three nights in Moscow, to enter the Kremlin before public hours, go backstage at the Bolshoi, and discover the masterpieces in the Pushkin Museum and Tretyakov Galleries. Then embark on a six-night voyage aboard the elegant Volga Dream. Call at Uglich, founded a thousand years ago, to hear an a cappella choir inside a 15th-century church. Visit two medieval monasteries in Goritsy and explore the magical island of Kizhy. Enjoy stunning scenery as you cross Europe's largest freshwater lake to call at the village of Svirstroy. Visit a resident's home for refreshments and a chat about village life before continuing to St. Petersburg, where we disembark. Onboard classes in Russian language and cuisine will add to the pleasures of this voyage.
