Tour Details

During this 12-day journey, you will get acquainted with two main Russian cities and a range of old towns that lie between them: Uglich, Yaroslavl, Goritsy, Kizhi, and Mandrogi. Each of them has its unique history and boasts of original architectural pearls. River traveling is very different from a “regular” traveling by land, simply because it gives you an opportunity to observe landscapes and towns from a different perspective. It’s like watching a movie – all you need to do is relax, get comfortable and enjoy the magnificent views passing by… We will make stops in every town and explore their most beautiful historical areas.

The tour implies the possibility of choosing the departure point – you may start your journey in Moscow and finish it in Saint Petersburg, or the other way around – it doesn’t change the tour program.
