Every year, our favorite family water trip is the Russia river cruise. If you ask us “why”, we would only say that it is splendid. The Volga Dream is a marvelous ship with the best crew on board that makes you forget everything bad; all your sorrows and anxieties disappear immediately. This trip comprises many aspects: if you need entertaining, you have it; if you are eager to broaden your horizon – many chances to fill in the gaps. Every year brings something new and fresh into our life. We keep all the moments and emotions with warmth and tenderness.
