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.
