St Petersburg to Moscow on the Volga Dream
Embark on an epic journey through Russian history and culture as you trace the mighty Volga River from imperial St Petersburg to the awe-inspiring capital city of Moscow.
Begin in St Petersburg, where Emperor Peter the Great and his Romanov successors transformed a wild marshland into one of Europe’s great cities of art, music, high fashion and Baroque architecture. Then, cruise up the Volga River on the luxurious Volga Dream, travelling through the broad fields which stirred the soul of Tolstoy and other literary masters.
In Moscow, reach the apex of ancient and modern Russian culture as you explore a city of colourful churches, solemn bells and exquisite art and music.
Along the way, benefit from the insight of three expert tour leaders: art curator Alan Dodge AM, music broadcaster Christopher Lawrence and Russian literary expert Irina Dunn.
