Volga River Tailormade Holidays

Discover the stunning architecture and unique cultural heritage of Russia's most interesting cities on a Volga River cruise that combines the Volga River, the Moscow Canal and other waterways.

Many Volga River cruises visit Kostroma, where the streets fan out from a central square in a classical 18th and 19th layout and you can see medieval peasant homes and the golden dome of Ipatievsky Monastery and museum. On your Volga River cruise, you may also enjoy an excursion to Nizhni Novgorod, home to political exiles for years and recently opened to tourism, or a stop in the ancient seat of the Tatar Empire, Kazan, where a unique blend of Muslim and Christian influences still exists. Most Volga River cruises also sail to Uglich, one of the oldest towns in Russia, and Volograd, which used to be called Stalingrad and is the site of the famous WWII Battle.

Kizhi Island on Lake Onega has an open air museum, UNESCO protected churches and the fine arts museum. Over the coming days stops and sightseeing visits are made at Goritzy - the Monastery of St Cyril on the White Lake and the Museum of Icons. Yaroslavl (250km north - east of Moscow) - village market, Church of Elijah and Governor’s House. Uglich - walking tour, Kremlin, Church of St. Dimitry on the blood and Transfiguration Cathedral.
