Sail into the heartland of Russia on an elegant river cruise during the endless summer light of the White Nights.

From Moscow, embark on an eight-night voyage aboard the elegant Volga Dream. Call at Uglich, founded a thousand years ago; visit two medieval monasteries in Goritsy; and explore the magical island of Kizhy, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Disembark in St. Petersburg for a three-day stay during the White Nights, when the evening sky never darkens. Enter Catherine Palace before opening hours, see a ballet performance at the renowned Mariinsky Theatre, and tour the Hermitage Museum when it is closed to the public. You may also choose a canal cruise past the city's beautiful pastel palaces, a guided walk through Peter the Great's Summer Garden, or a visit to the newly opened Fabergé Museum. Onboard classes in Russian language and cuisine will add to the pleasures of this voyage.

During an optional three-night prelude in Moscow, stay at the Four Seasons Hotel, steps from Red Square and Saint Basil's Cathedral. Attend a performance at the historic Bolshoi Theatre, where you will meet one of the dancers; enter the Kremlin before public hours; and tour the beautiful stations of the Moscow Metro, known as "the People's Palaces."
