Day 3 (Wed, Sep 22, 2021): Yaroslavl
Today there will be a guided sightseeing over this great city located at the confluence of the Volga and the Kotorosl Rivers. This city of Yaroslavl is widely known for its great 17th century architecture. Also it is an outstanding example of the urban planning reform that the Empress Catherine the Great ordered for the whole of Russia in 1763. In the course of this reform Yaroslavl kept its the most significant historic structures, but was generally renovated in the neo-classical style in accordance with radial urban master plan. The Spaso-Preobrazhensky Monastery, the oldest one in the Volga Region was left untouched - today it is a well-preserved historical monumet of the utmost importance to Yaroslavl Region and to the entire Russia. The Monastery dates back to the late 12th century, when it was buit on the site of a pagan temple; its major reconstruction occured in the 16th century. The Spaso-Preobrazhensky Monastery is on our list today along with the famous Church of Elijah the Prophet. Breakfast, lunch and dinner aboard.
Day 4 (Thu, Sep 23, 2021): Goritsy
On the list today there will be a bus trip to the Monastery of St. Cyril of the White Lake. The monastery was founded in 1397 on the bank of Lake Siverskoye, to the south of the town of Beloozero, in the present-day Vologda Oblast. The Czar Ivan the Terrible not only had his own cell in the cloister, but also planned to take monastic vows here. Back then it was also a political prison for high-ranking officials. Breakfast, lunch and dinner aboard.
Day 5 (Fri, Sep 24, 2021): Kizhi
Kizhi is one of the real Russian wonders and a UNESCO World Heritage site. There will be a walking tour around this open air museum of amazing wooden architecture. Wooden houses that are traditional for the Russian North are also visited during this tour. Travelers get to know the traditional way of life and learn about crafts of the locals. This also includes the production of so called “plowshares” – that wooden “squama” covering the onion domes of Kizhi. Breakfast, lunch and dinner aboard.
Day 6 (Sat, Sep 25, 2021): River Village Mandrogi
Docking at Mandrogi is called a “green stop.” The nature there is very green and picturesque. On the other hand travelers have a “green light” to spend lots of time on their own. They get a chance to contact local villagers, to learn about traditional crafts and Russian cuisine, to buy souvenirs and to take a little walk through the beautiful forests of Northern Russia. The Museum of Russian Vodka is a highlight of this splendid green stop. Breakfast, BBQ for lunch and dinner aboard.
*at times the stop in Mandrogi might be replaced by a stop in Svirstroy or Lodeynoye Pole. The cognitive experience will be a similar one.
