Waterways of Russia
Voyage through the heartland of Russia aboard the deluxe Volga Dream, cruising along scenic rivers, lakes, and canals with stops at traditional villages and the two great cultural capitals of St. Petersburg and Moscow.
WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY
The ship was luxurious, the educated guests were a pleasure to be with, the lecturers superb and accessible. Unless one experiences the Volga Dream with Smithsonian, he won't know the exquisite pleasure of listening to a lecture on Russian literature, while sitting in a fine lounge, watching the Russian countryside drift by. We thought we had died and gone to heaven.”
