Day 5
Yaroslavl - Kostroma
City Tour around Yaroslavl. City Tour around Kostroma. Visit to Ipatievsky Monastery
Full day description.Today we reach the port of Yaroslavl, strung out along both banks of the Volga. It takes its name from its founder, Prince Yaroslav the Wise who based himself here in the 11th Century. An undisputed highlight of the city is its 13th Century Spassky Monastery. Hosting several cathedrals, a rotunda and the remains of an ancient trading centre, this is a fascinating complex to explore. Our tour takes in the Church of the Prophet Elijah and many other cultural highlights, including a visit to Spaso-Preobrazhenskiy Monastery.

Historic Kostroma is located where the Kostroma River joins the Volga, part of the famous Golden Ring around Moscow. It's the site of the Ipatievskiy Monastery where we will visit today, founded in the latter part of the 18th Century.

Day 7
Cheboksary
City Tour around Cheboksary
The capital of the Chuvash republic in the Volga region, Cheboksary was founded in the middle of the fifteenth century. A fortress was constructed there in 1555 but the town was a backwater until the coming of the railway in 1939. As a result, there's no shortage of ancient churches and monasteries, among them Vvedensky cathedral (1657) and Saint-Trinity monastery (1566). here's also an excellent view to be had in the middle of the city of a pretty bay which has become a very popular gathering place for the local people.
Day 8
Kazan
City Tour around Kazan. Visit to the Kremlin
Kazan has a fascinating past, founded by the Mongols, occupied by the Golden Horde and the capital of the Khanate of Kazan. It was conquered by Ivan the Terrible in the 16th century. This multi-faceted history has led the city to be what it is today: half Russian and half Tatar, it is a charming blend of Muslim and Christian cultures, a unique mix which sets it apart from the other cities we'll visit on this journey. Today, we'll take a guided tour of the city's Kremlin.
Day 9
Samara
City Tour around Samara
In the Soviet era, Samara was a closed city, shut away from the rest of the world to focus on defence during the years of the Cold War. Fortunately, it's now well and truly open for business. We'll take a city tour including a visit to Samara's art gallery and learn more about the history of this city, founded in the 14th century and, as Kuybyshev, chosen during World War Two to be the replacement capital after fears that Moscow would fall to the encroaching German troops.
Day 10
Saratov
City Tour around Saratov
Another former closed city, this time due to its manufacture of military aircraft, we visit Saratov. Its name probably originates from "Sary tau" or yellow mountain as the city is surrounded by sandy hills. It was once an autonomous republic, the area in which the Volga Germans settled until they were relocated to Siberia and Kazakhstan during the Second World War. Many never returned to the city. Saratov's other claim to fame is as the home of the first man in space, Yuri Gagarin, and a vital part of the Soviet space programme.
Day 11
Volgograd
City Tour around Volgograd. Visit to Mamaev Kurgan
Volgograd has the status of "Hero City" and honour bestowed as a consequence of the suffering it endured during World War Two. Formerly known as Tsaritsyn and later Stalingrad, Hitler ordered the bombardment of the city as he tried to advance on the Eastern Front. Two hundred days of shelling took an enormous toll, leaving an estimated 1-2 million casualties on both sides. Our guided tour takes us to Mamaev Kurgan and the statue of The Motherland Calls.
Day 12
Along the Volga
Entertainment Onboard
Today, we can sit back and enjoy the onboard entertainment as we cruise towards the city if Astrakhan.
Day 13

We have recently returned from our trip to Russia and I thought perhaps you would like some feedback. We were so lucky with the weather as it was hot and sunny throughout apart from St. Petersburg. The staff on the boat were superb as was the food and the entertainment. We really did enjoy our holiday with Go Russia and would like to thank you for arranging it for us.
