Russian History Cruise from Moscow to St. Petersburg

Join Vantage on this Russian journey and unlock the mysterious secrets and juxtaposing allure of what awaits beyond the former Iron Curtain as you peel back complex and colorful layers like an intricate matryoshka nesting doll.

Canals of St. Petersburg

An included tour today features St. Petersburg’s canals, which are part of the historic group of monuments known collectively as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And besides a storied history, what connects these banks? Beautiful bridges, of course. Adornments include statues, horses, griffins, and sphinxes, and the spans all come in a plethora of hues. See them and Yusupov Palace, legendary site of Rasputin’s slaying.

Peterhof Grand Palace & The Catherine Palace 

First, we will travel a short distance outside of St.Petersburg to visit Peterhof, a UNESCO site built by Peter the Great that is often referred to as the "Russian Versailles." We will also visit the Catherine Palace, a UNESCO site that served as the summer residence of tsars.  

Vantage Highlight: Moscow

Your Russia travel itinerary includes a grand city tour of Moscow, including the KGB building, Kremlin Towers, and the Arbat, a massive pedestrian thoroughfare filled with many shops that put any Cold War-era memories of bare shelves, well, on the shelf! Plus, you'll have free time to explore iconic Red Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where colorful St. Basil's Cathedral and Lenin's Mausoleum beckons.

Kizhi Island

Visit Kizhi Island, whose church and the adjacent clock tower are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This open-air museum of wooden architecture is a true site to behold, and you’ll admire fascinating examples of traditional wooden buildings collected from around Russia. Among the notable structures is the Church of the Transfiguration, an ornate structure with 22 domes, built entirely without nails.

Mandrogi

An included excursion takes you to the village of Mandrogi, where you’ll visit a wooden home and a local handicrafts market, followed by a shashlik (Russian barbecue) lunch.

OPTIONAL EXTENSION TO Helsinki, Finland

Whether you’re viewing Helsinki’s 1852 cathedral, crossing one of its many parks or squares, or seeing yourself reflected in the glass of a brand-new building, you'll find that there’s an appealing orderliness and grace to this northern capital.
