Explore the longest river in Europe with a cruise on the Volga between Moscow and St Petersburg, on this 12 day itinerary from Emerald Waterways. You’ll see the magnificent highlights that each city has to offer, from Red Square in Moscow to the Hermitage Museum and the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood in St Petersburg, whilst your tour guides will also show you sights off the beaten path. Russia’s true gems come between these two cities though, with delightful towns and villages giving you an insight into Russian life. Explore intricate wooden churches, shop for souvenirs at craft markets and discover a wealth of folklore in each charming destination.
