Day 2
Rostov-on-Don
City Tour around Rostov
Present day Rostov-on-Don has a history dating back to December 15th, 1749. On that date, a customs house was created to manage trade with Turkey. These days, following the construction of the Volga-Don Shipping Canal, the city serves as a port for no fewer than five seas: the Black Sea, the Sea of Azov, the Caspian Sea, the White Sea and the Baltic Sea.
Day 3
Along the Volga. Volga-Don Canal
Cruising
We sail along the Volga today passing Volga-Don Canal.
Day 4
Volgograd
City Tour around Volgograd. Visit to Mamaev Kurgan
Volgograd is what's termed a "Hero City", an accolade reserved for only a handful of places. This was the place once known as Tsaritsyn and then, most famously, Stalingrad. As Stalingrad, it endured a 200 day battle during World War Two during which it was shelled relentlessly by the Nazis, causing immense suffering and loss of life on both sides. We'll explore the present-day city on a guided tour.
Day 5
Along the Volga
Cruising
We sail along the Volga today; enjoy your leisure time to absorb the scenery as we pass.
Day 6
Astrakhan
City Tour around Astrakhan
Astrakhan, situated about 100km from the Caspian Sea and the closest gateway to the Volga Delta, dates from the 13th century. Once the capital of the Astrakhan Khanate, it fell to Ivan the Terrible who destroyed this Tatar city and rebuilt it as the modern city of Astrakhan. Historically an important trading centre for Eurasian trade, its economy today is based around sturgeon and the production of caviar. We'll enjoy a guided visit to its Kremlin as part of our shore excursion.

Day 8
Volgograd
Optional Tours
We offer your optional tours to Panorama Museum or military cemetery Rossoshka.
Day 9
Saratov
City Tour around Saratov
A couple of hundred years so, you'd have heard German being spoken here in Saratov. The Volga Germans as they were known settled here and had autonomous status. However, this was not to last. At the outbreak of hostilities in World War Two, they were exiled by the Soviet authorities to Kazakhstan and to Siberia. Most didn't return. After the war, Saratov became a closed city, a major military manufacturing base, meaning it was closed to visitors. Fortunately, this is no longer the case and we can visit to learn more about this city, the home of Yuri Gagarin, first man in space.
Day 10
Samara
City Tour around Samara
Like Saratov, Samara's defence industry focus meant it too was a closed city for years. It was known as Kuybyshev, named for the Bolshevik leader Valerion Kuybyshev. The city held great status during the Second World War as it was allotted the role of alternative capital, ready to takeover the reins from Moscow which, it was feared, would fall to the Germans.
Day 11
Ulianovsk
City Tour around Ulianovsk
Once known as Simbirsk, this was the birthplace of Vladimir Ulyanov, better known as Lenin. He was born here in 1870 and lived here as a child and a teenager. We'll learn more about the great leader on a visit to his home and also a museum in the town dedicated to his life and actions.
Day 12
Kazan
City Tour around Kazan. Visit to the Kremlin & the Mosque
Kazan is one of the richest Russian cities in terms of cultural heritage and to understand why we need to look to the past. Founded by the Mongols, later the seat of the Golden Horde and later still the capital of the Khanate of Kazan, eventually the city fell to Ivan the Terrible in the 16th century. These days, its blend of Russian and Tatar culture, Muslim and Christian religion, makes this an intriguing place to tour. We'll explore the city's impressive Kremlin before returning to the ship.
Day 13
Nizhny Novgorod
City Tour around Nizhny Novgorod. Visit to the Kremlin
Nizhny Novgorod, located in an excellent position commanding views of both the Volga and Oka rivers, is Russia's fifth largest city after its illustrious siblings Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk and Yekaterinburg. It has an interesting Kremlin which we shall visit. You'll also see the promenade known as Pokrovka which is popular with both locals and tourists alike.
Day 14
Plyos - Kostroma
Free Time. City Tour around Kostroma
The serene town of Plyos on the banks of the Volga, our stop today, is sometimes described as a Russian Switzerland. From its hilltop there are fantastic views to be had of the quayside. It's also the location for the museum dedicated to the work of Isaac Levitan, a prominent 19th century landscape artist.

Historic Kostroma sits at the confluence of the Kostroma and Volga Rivers, part of the famous Golden Ring towns that encircle Moscow. Our stop will focus on the eighteenth century Ipatievskiy Monastery and the open air wooden architecture museum that's located near its walls. You'll see churches, old houses, bath houses, watermills and windmills, all of which were brought from various villages in the Kostroma Region.
Day 15
Yaroslavl
City Tour around Yaroslavl
Today's port of call is charming Yaroslavl. An important port with a history dating back to the eleventh century, there are a number of exciting historic buildings to explore. These include the 13th century Spassky Monastery complex and several beautiful 17th century cathedrals. We'll visit the Church of the Prophet Elijah as well as the city's other cultural highlights as we go ashore.
Day 16
Uglich
City Tour around Uglich
Despite its name, this town is anything but ugly and in fact provides us with one of the most beautiful views in this river cruise itinerary. You'll see the town's skyline dominated by the Cathedral of the Resurrection and St John's Church as we approach. Our guided tour will let us see them close up, as well as the Kremlin where the seventh wife of Ivan the Terrible lived in exile in the 16th century.
Day 17
Moscow
City Tour around Moscow
Today's the day we reach the Russian capital and we guarantee you'll be wowed by this great city. It's packed full of elegant squares, leafy boulevards, bustling thoroughfares and of course, unique landmarks. After taking in the panoramic views of the city from Sparrow Hills, we'll head down to the city centre where we'll end up in Red Square. Our excursion will also take us to Poklonnaya Hills, a monument in honour of a Russian victory in the Great Patriotic War (World War II).
Day 18
Moscow
Kremlin Territory with Cathedrals
It's back to the heart of Moscow today as we visit the Kremlin, once home to the Tsars and now the office of the Russian president. Its beautiful cathedrals ooze history out of every crack in their stonework. You can also go inside the Kremlin Armoury Museum (optional excursion) to admire the treasures of the Tsars, which comprise jewels, crowns, thrones and more. And of course we'll return to Red Square to have a further look at the famous landmarks that grace its sides, such as Lenin's Mausoleum and GUM department store.
