Russia Cruises

Although Russia’s iron curtain was pulled back many years ago, it’s still a cruise holiday destination that is shrouded in mystery. Well, now’s your opportunity to take a peak at what it has to offer. You may be surprised, especially when visiting St Petersburg, at how ‘un-Russian’ it is. The city is very westernised with few examples of red brick, onion-topped buildings you associate with Moscow.  [ReadMoreMob]

From the palaces of Peterhof to the fine galleries and museums, Russia is a cultural wonder steeped in history all dressed up with lashings of vodka.

When it comes to satisfying your appetite, you’ll find the cuisine surprisingly international, but don’t forget to try the blini (small pancakes with caviar, fish, melted butter or sour cream), ponchiki (small sugared doughnuts) and borshct (beetroot soup).

Your Russian cruise holiday will open your senses to a country that long remained hidden from western eyes. But its sheer size means that more than one visit will be necessary to witness all the highlights it has to offer.
