Thinking of Russia, two great cities immediately come to mind: Moscow and St. Petersburg. This monumental 13-day itinerary includes multiple days in both cities, touring such landmarks as Moscow’s Kremlin and Red Square, and Catherine’s Palace and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. But, there is another side of Russia—quaint riverside towns like Yaroslavl, Uglich and Mandrogy that only a river cruise can provide. There are opulent palaces, fortified monasteries and beautiful cathedrals to see. An ideal way to experience the history and culture of this unique and mysterious country.

The journey from Moscow to St Petersburg visits Uglich, Yaroslavl, Kirillo, Kizhi and Mandrogy.
