This program offers a once-in-a-lifetime change to visit and study in St. Petersburg and Moscow, and spend 11 days on a ship that will take you down the Volga River and deep into Russian history. During this program, you will see some of Russia’s greatest historical sites, and visit more World Heritage Sites than most people see in a lifetime!
Among more than a dozen of the UNESCO World Heritage sites, you'll see: the Hermitage, the Winter Palace of Peter the Great, and the Admiralty in St. Petersburg; you'll tour the water gardens at Peterhof, built by Peter the Great and powered solely by gravity; and you'll visit the palaces at Pushkin and Pavlovsk. As you head down the Volga River, "Waterway to the Tsars," on Lake Onega in Karelia, you'll visit the iconic wooden structures on Kizhi Island. You will stop in Yaroslavl, one of the oldest cities in Russia, and visit the Spassky Monastery, founded on a pagan site in the 12th century. In Moscow, you'll visit the churches and museums of the Kremlin, and the Novodevichy Convent, founded in 1097 and you'll spend a night at the Moscow Circus! And much more.
