Czar's Cruise of Russia, brand new MS Mustai Karim

Category: River Cruises

 

 

  

 

A Royal Journey!


The most relaxing and scenic way to experience Russia is by cruising along the rivers connecting Moscow and St. Petersburg on the deck of one of our elegant cruise ships.

Nowhere could this be more satisfyingly true than of this cruise along the rivers, lakes and canals through the very heartland of Mother Russia, from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

And what scenery - nor only what you see but also what it evokes in the mind:

a country laden with history, a place where different centuries seem to come together - it is all been laid on especially for you - and in a way it has.  

Sit back and relax as our cruise ship introduces you to the splendorous landscapes Russia has to offer
