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.

Our tip

If you come by ship, you will find that arranging a private tour, especially if there is a group of you, is more cost-effective than the ship’s excursions, and a better experience too. We can arrange it for you.

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.

Don't miss

Moscow has the world’s finest metro system. Don’t try to deal with the traffic… Use it! Speedy, reliable and clean.
