Explore the greatest artistic, historical and architectural treasures of classical Russian culture, and several "Golden Ring" cities, during an excellent time of year. Cruise aboard the exclusively chartered M.S.Volga Dream, the most Deluxe Small Ship cruising Russia's waterways, which also features the lowest passenger density. Visit splendid St. Petersburg, Russia's "window on the West," the majestic legacy of that most visionary of czars, Peter the Great. From St. Petersburg, cruise through the heartland of Mother Russia, where everyday life goes on at the measured pace it has kept for generations. Here, villagers still dwell in traditional wooden cottages and preserve the folkways of their ancestors, and onion-domed churches and fortified monasteries testify to the abiding faith of the Russian people. Our program concludes with one night aboard ship in the fabled city of Moscow, the political and commercial capital of the world's largest country and the cultural frontier between East and West.
