I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cruise. I knew it would be nicer then an average Russian cruise, but our experience went above and beyond our expectations. The food was fantastic, the service fabulous, the tours interesting. Having lived in St. Petersburg for the last two years, we were just looking for an interesting way to see Kizhi, the Golden Ring and Moscow. Instead, we had one of the best weeks here in Russia.

The Soviets knew how to collect things. They simply ordered it so. In the 1960s, they ordered many nearby ancient wooden homes, windmills, and churches transported to Kizhi Island. Located in Lake Onega in the republic of Karelia, today Kizhi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with an
astounding array of characteristic Russian architecture. The 16th-century St. Lazarus church of the Muromsky Monastery is one of oldest wooden chapels in Russia. Drafty though it may be, the 22-dome Transfiguration Cathedral, a log structure standing 120 feet tall, was built in 1714 without a single nail.
