River Cruise Itinerary

  1. Day 1
    St. Petersburg
    Tue, Aug 03, 2021

    Arrival and embarkation. In case you need a transfer upon arrival, please, see details and costs here. This extraordinary city, founded by the Emperor Peter the Great in 1703, is the highlight of your Russian River adventure. The Emperor accomplished what could have seemed impracticable back in those days - he built a remarkable European city on really swampy lands. It might be possible to have some time on your own in the city center on today’s eve in case of your relatively early arrival. Pulkovo Airport (LED) is located not far from the ship's docking site, but traffic jams do happen. A nice choice of optional tours is offered while the ship is in St. Petersburg. Dinner aboard.

  2. Day 2
    St. Petersburg
    Wed, Aug 04, 2021

The Hermitage is one of the world's most famous and the most prestigious museums, and is a must-see for all first-time travelers to the city. With over 3 million items in its collection, it also definitely rewards repeat visits, and new-comers can only hope to get a brief taste of the riches on offer here, from Impressionist masterpieces to fascinating Oriental treasures. Breakfast, lunch and dinner aboard.

  4. Day 4
    River Village Mandrogi
    Fri, Aug 06, 2021

    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 Russian crafts and to experience Russian cuisine. They can buy souvenirs or 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.

This city of Yaroslavl is widely known for its great 17th century architecture. This place is also an outstanding live example of the urban planning reform that the Empress Catherine the Great has ordered in 1763 entirely for Russia. 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 Russia as a whole. 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 together with the famous Church of Elijah the Prophet. Breakfast, lunch and dinner aboard.
