Experience the best that Russia has to offer by going on one of our Volga cruises. Known in Russian folklore as "Mother Volga", The Volga has played a vital role in the life of the Russian people with eleven out of the twenty largest cities of Russia, including its capital Moscow, situated in the Volga basin. On a Volga river cruise, you’ll get to see all these key places. The longest river in Europe, it flows 2,300 miles from its origin in the Valday Hills northwest of Moscow through the western part of Russia before emptying into the Caspian Sea.
Connected to the River Neva by Lake Ladoga, Volga cruises are the perfect way to discover not only the iconic sights of Moscow and the "Golden Ring" cities of Uglich and Yaroslavl, but also the peerless cultural and architectural treasures of St Petersburg. The Volga-Don Canal enables the connection with the Don River and the Black Sea, while connections with the Lake Onega, enables access to the Baltic Sea through the Volga-Baltic Waterway. The way to Moscow is available through the Moscow Canal, which connects the Volga and the Moskva rivers. Such a network of waterways enables Volga river cruise ships to travel many thousands of miles throughout the Russian Federation.
