Russia Cruise Holidays
Russia Cruise Holiday Highlights
Known as the Venice of the North, St Petersburg has a distinctly Italian flavour, with plazas and canals dotted with Italianate mansions. It’s known for its fascinating history and opulent architecture, and a visit to the Hermitage Museum ticks both of those boxes. The museum houses more than three million works of art and world culture artefacts, from Egyptian antiquities to Renaissance works. Outside the major cities of St Petersburg and Moscow, the surrounding countryside is sprawling and remote. Unsurprisingly, ecotourism is big here, with much flora and fauna to discover throughout the land.
