Waterways of the Tsars
An upgraded vessel for a shorter cruise along the quiet rivers, lakes and canals between Moscow and St. Petersburg, visiting historic Uglich, St. Cyril’s Monastery and magnificent Kizhi Island
Russia is epic. It’s the largest country in the world, spans nine time zones and borders 14 countries across two continents. Its cultural, artistic and historical heritage is equally as great, enticing a wide variety of visitors. Whether it’s in dance, politics, religion or almost anything else, our tours to Russia are sure to give you experiences you’ll treasure for life wherever your passion lies.
For architecture enthusiasts, it doesn’t get much better than our Russian Capitals tour as you experience the magnificent St. Petersburg and Moscow. Truly unique, St. Petersburg was the vision of Peter the Great – the man who invited the best European engineers, shipbuilders, architects, craftsmen and merchants to transform marshland into a great city of canals, cathedrals and palaces. Moscow is equally as exciting and steeped in history, with an array of Italian and French inspired architecture to discover. On these Russia tours, must-sees are the iconic Red Square, the Kremlin and St. Basil’s Cathedral.
Although art can be found across the length and breadth of Russia, Moscow is very much an art-lover’s Mecca. There’s an array of fantastic museums to explore – including the Pushkin Museum of Fine Art housing many master works; the Tretyakov Gallery, with the greatest display of Russian art; and the Hermitage in St Petersburg, where you’ll find a wide collection of European pieces.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the cities, marvel at a beauty that is hard to describe on Russia’s quiet rivers, lakes and canals. Our cruises in Russia allow you to take in serene silver birch and pine forests, peaceful sandy shores, calm flowing water and breathtaking sunsets. Discover the Waterways of the Tsars or the Passage to St. Petersburg.
Whether you want to marvel at natural beauty, discover UNESCO World Heritage sites or travel on the Trans-Siberian Railway, our escorted tours to Russia are the perfect way to experience all that this wonderful country has to offer.
Russia trips can be enjoyed at any time of year. However, many travellers choose to visit during the warmer spring and summer months when flora and fauna are in blossom. Between May and September, you will most likely experience pleasant temperatures of between 23 and 30 degrees and long days filled with sunshine.
With such a wide range of exciting Russia trips to choose from, there truly is something to suit anyone. Experience natural beauty by railway, wander through historic cities or take to the water on one of our cruises in Russia. No matter which you choose, all our guided tours to Russia offer superior comfort and luxury and let you experience the culture at leisure. You will travel as part of a small group, allowing you to enjoy a more relaxed and intimate atmosphere – as well as personal attention from your tour guide.
At Jules Verne, unrivalled comfort, exceptional experience and in-depth knowledge are at the heart of every one of our Russia tours. We’re sure that you will experience the trip of a lifetime.
