Russia & the Rivers of the Czars Logo 2

WTVP Travels’ Russia & The Rivers of the Czars has everything you’ve been asking for in a trip: culture, history, folk art, natural beauty, adventure, excitement, and an exotic setting. Better yet, you can experience it all and only unpack once because your accommodations come with you! Your ten days aboard the m/s Korotkov begin in St. Petersburg and end with three days in Mosow. Along the way you’ll enjoy famous sites like the Hermitage, the Winter Palace of the Czars, Red Square, and the onion domes of the Kremlin. You’ll get to spend time with authentic Russian “locals” in their homes, sample Russia’s famous caviar and blini, and possibly take in Russian ballet, circus, and musical entertainments. And, of course, there’s plenty of time to explore on your own.
