Russia

Sail down the beautiful rivers

Overview

Russia strikes a delicate balance between ancient and avant-garde. From medieval history to haute cuisine; incense filled churches to roof-top bars; and Pskov masonry to chrome high-rises – Russia is in a constant state of evolution (or revolution!). Be it Anna Pavlova, Catherine the Great, Leo Tolstoy or Ivan the Terrible, Russia’s extravagance is a result of the larger than life characters who have created her story – Russian art, politics, literature, music, dance, drama, and even architecture have an intense flamboyance unlike anywhere else.

As you travel through Russia with us, you will step behind-the-scenes, beyond closed doors, and learn about the culture first-hand from the locals.
