The Russian Cruise Company offers a wide selection of cruises within Russia. Our most popular route is Moscow to St. Petersburg, which includes visits to the two major Russian cities as well as a number of ancient towns in between - Uglich, Yaroslavl, Goritsy, Kizhi, and Mandrogi. Usually, these cruises take 10-12 days, but an express 8-day option is also available. For those travelers who have already traveled along the Moscow to St. Petersburg route and would like to get to know Russia more intimately, we highly recommend Astrakhan - Moscow cruises and Russian North cruises. Whereas Moscow - St. Petersburg and Moscow - Astrakhan have passengers from all over the world, our Russian North cruises are full of Russians, which allows to truly immerse yourself in Russian culture and make new Russian friends.
Our Moscow to St. Petersburg cruises begin in Moscow and then take you along the magnificent Volga River onward to St. Petersburg.
