Waterways of the Tsars on Viking Ingvar
Moscow to St. Petersburg
On this culturally rich itinerary, you'll tour iconic landmarks such as Moscow's Kremlin and Red Square, and Catherine Palace and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. But you'll also experience the other side of Russia: quaint Golden Ring towns like Yaroslavl and Uglich that only a river cruise can show you. Visit opulent palaces, fortified monasteries and beautiful cathedrals, and discover Russia's unique history and culture.
Discover Russia on the Volga River, where Viking began with four ships in 1997. See swirling onion domes in Moscow and opulent palaces in St. Petersburg. Share stories at the kitchen table of an Uglich family. Soak up the steam in a traditional banya. Savor Russian caviar with blini pancakes. Sail in comfort on our ships, owned and operated by Viking. This 13-day voyage-a favorite of Chairman Torstein Hagen-reveals the real Russia as never before.
More than 20 years ago, Viking began sailing the storied waterways of Russia. Today, our fully refurbished, elegant Russia fleet sets new standards of excellence in this region. Complete with hotel-style amenities, they feature spacious staterooms and suites, an inviting restaurant and refined public spaces.
Son of Rurik, Ingvar was born around 875 AD and succeeded Helgi as Grand Prince of Kiev and took control of the ever-expanding empire. He also ruled for around 30 years and carried the conquests of Kievan Rus further, forging east and undertaking campaigns against Persia, Constantinople and Bulgaria.
