Setting sail from St Petersburg

Lovely St Petersburg was Russia's imperial capital, and remains its most European-facing city. The undeniable highlight of any Baltic cruise, the 'Venice of the North' features so much to see and do, with its high art, lavish architecture, dramatic history and rich cultural traditions. Cruise along scenic canals, enjoy the long summer evenings of the 'White Nights', marvel at the spires and domes that dominate the skyline, or feast on the extraordinary wealth of treasures housed within the Hermitage, one of the world's great art galleries.

Don't miss

You have to miss some things, because there is just so much to see. But whatever you do, try and get early entrance to the Hermitage for a whistle stop tour of key treasures.

Arriving in Moscow

Moscow is one of the world's most evocative capitals, a city that conjures up images of Cold War espionage, bombastic military parades, golden onion domed churches and hardy commuters trudging through three feet of snow. This is where Russia's power and wealth are concentrated, along with much of its history, and you'll need at least a few days here if you are to begin to do the city justice; Red Square, Lenin's Tomb, Gorky Park and the Bolshoi Theatre are just a few of the many highlights.

Our tip

Always carry your passport with you, and the number of your embassy – threaten to use it if you fall out with the police over anything!
