Discover A cruise on the Volga departing from Moscow Russia

Russia's legendary river, the Volga runs through the towns of Rzev, Tver, Kalyazin, Ouglitch (one of the jewels of the Golden Ring) and Mychkine before widening out at the Rybinsk Resevoir (1,800 miČ). Cruises on the river from Moscow to Saint Petersburg are very popular. Branching off to the left you pass through Tutaev (founded in 1283 and famous for its Church of the Exaltation of the Cross, the Church of Transfiguration and Kazan Virgin, and the Resurrection Cathedral), the Tolga Monastery of the Presentation of the Virgin, Yaroslavl and Kostroma. Returning to the Rybinsk Resevoir, you'll then head north towards Saint Petersburg via Cherepovets, Sheksna, Goritsy, Kirillov and Belozersk on White Lake where the canal linking the lake to the Baltic Sea begins. These 250-mile cruises are available from the beginning of May until the end of September (the Volga is frozen during winter and therefore is not navigable).
