Large cities, vast country.

11 days St. Petersburg-Karelia-Yaroslavl-Moscow

Travel this fascinating country in a particularly comfortable way: MS FEDIN was renovated in 2018 and offers numerous amenities on board. It travels on a waterway system between the metropolises of St. Petersburg and Moscow, planned by Peter the Great, but actually completed under Stalin. The breathtaking countryside of Karelia stretches out along the rivers and canals. As one of the most beautiful old Russian cities in the “Golden Ring”, Yaroslavl awaits with some impressive sacred buildings. In the middle of Lake Onega, on Kizhi Island, the open-air museum is another cause for amazement with its island churches made from wood. Truly a cruise you need to experience!
