With the diversity of things you can see, Russia is hailed as one of the great places to visit. Here, you can enjoy the architectural wonders of St Petersburg, the luxurious business centers and great monuments of Moscow, the various places of history and the breath-taking natural wonders. While on a Russian tour you can enjoy diverse cruises and many night attractions.
If you want to enjoy the best attractions of Russia, you should take a Russian river cruise. Travel by boat gives you several advantages. River Cruise is cheaper in Russia than travel by land. The ships ferrying visitors are very well appointed. Each is designed to carry more than 150 passengers and about 80 crew on board. The cabins are fully air-conditioned. There are facilities to play games, and attend beauty salons. The cuisine is diverse and is tailored to include the specialty of the region the ship passes through. On some river cruises, guest speakers are arranged to give the visitor a briefing about the site a visitor is about to visit.
Russian rivers are large and wide. You can even think that they are lakes. The Volga River for example is more than 3690 Kms long and is the longest river in the European Continent. More than one third of Russian population lives by the side of this great river. Though parts of the river have been affected by industrialization, many parts of the river are still un-spoilt where you can see nature in its pristine glory. This river is also home to a variety of species including many birds like the Bald eagles, Herons and others.
The most famous of the river cruises is from Moscow to St Petersburg. These two cities stand on the banks of the main waterway connecting the Baltic and black Sea. The waterway connections in Russia are somewhat complicated. These connect these two cities to five dissimilar seas and create conditions for a voyage on a river ship from north to south across Russia and Eurasia.

You can visit many regions of this mysterious country. They would house mosques of ancient Kazan, banks of the Black Sea, canals of Novgorod, luxurious palaces of St Petersburg and golden domes of Moscow’s churches and the fabulous museums of Moscow.
