From the might and splendour of Moscow to the haunting beauty of St. Petersburg, Russia remains as intriguing as it ever was. In spite of the thawing of the Cold War, its sheer size ensures that it is still relatively impenetrable. It is, after all, a land as vast as it is beautiful. There’s simply no better way to traverse those vast distances than along Russia’s wild and majestic waterways. The best option by far is a luxury cruise on board Scenic Tsar. Life on board this boutique ship, which is unique in Scenic’s impressive fleet, is an incomparable blend of luxury and intimacy. With only 112 guests, Scenic Tsar is the ultimate river cruiser, providing sanctuary from the inconveniences of travelling great distances by land, and allowing you to immerse yourself completely in the many cultures and wonders to be experienced on the way.
