Russia is a land of monumental size and beauty, with glorious cities, cultural landmarks of incomparable magnificence, and a history as captivating as it is complex. Many wonders of Russia will be revealed on this epic journey, starting with a three-night hotel stay in St. Petersburg. Travel by train to Moscow where a world of wonder awaits as you embark your luxury Russia river cruise. To travel along the Volga River between the two great cities of Moscow and Stalingrad is a step back in time. However, Russia offers up many additional surprises to discover, with culinary delights, welcoming locals and spectacular scenery to enjoy. We welcome you aboard Scenic Tsar, and into the beating heart of this captivating country.

Throughout your time on the enigmatic Volga River, you’ll be privy to a collection of special encounters which promise to take your experience of Russia beyond that of the ordinary traveller. From a private musical concert in the Noble Assembly House of the Choreographic College of National Ballet to an extended guided tour through the prestigious Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics, which documents Russia’s proud legacy of space exploration; our Scenic Enrich experiences help you unlock the secrets of this enigmatic country.
