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

From Moscow, embark on a nine-night voyage aboard the elegant Volga Dream. Call at Uglich, founded a thousand years ago; admire frescoes in Yaroslavl, unscathed by World War II; visit two medieval monasteries in Goritsy; and explore the magical island of Kizhy, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spend three days aboard the ship in St. Petersburg during the White Nights, when the evening sky never darkens. Enter Catherine Palace before opening hours, and tour the Hermitage Museum on an exclusive after-hours visit with a champagne reception and classical music. Enjoy a canal cruise past the city's beautiful pastel palaces and choose a visit to the newly opened Fabergé Museum or a guided tour of St. Isaac's Cathedral. 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 Ritz-Carlton, 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."
