I am fond of traveling by water and at first I didn’t expect anything extraordinary in my trip by the river Volga. But I was mistaken, this river cruise was something unforgettable, an incredible experience I had never had before. I was sure that we would admire just the ship, floating along the river bank, and observe the local landscape. Indeed, the program surprised me on the board and after the disembarking: we had an excellently planned tour around the historic places of the cities, interesting video presentations on the most significant moments in the history of old Russia. My trip was worth passing it through!
Russia’s dynamic capital is a city bursting with excitement that is home to some of the world’s most iconic sites. Stand on Red Square and take in the great red walls of the Kremlin, Lenin’s Tomb, and the magical colored domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral in one sweeping view. Enjoy performances by outstanding ballerinas at the world-famous Bolshoi theatre, admire the hundreds of priceless artworks by Kandinsky and Malevich at the Tretyakov gallery or be dazzled by the diamonds on display at the
Kremlin armory. Moscow is a great city of contrasts, here the contemporary mixes with the ancient, sparkling skyscrapers brush up against ancient golden-domed cathedrals, while quiet cobble-stoned lanes hide behind bustling wide streets, lined with a wealth of world-class restaurants and bars. Cosmopolitan and forward-thinking Moscow rivals New York as a city that ‘never sleeps’ whilst the memories of some of the most important events in world history brood on every corner.
