Who is prone to changing places from childhood...
What attracts the traveler most about cruises is the opportunity to see many new cities in one trip. At the same time, he does not need to constantly unpack and collect suitcases, look for train stations and buy tickets when going to a new place. The comfortable cabins of the cruise ship rival the convenience of the best hotel rooms, and the cooks of the ship's kitchen are able to surprise even the most fastidious gourmets. If you add to this the pleasant prices for cruises on the Volga and attentive service on board, such tours will seem ideal and worthy of attention..
A huge list of cruise routes can be confusing for a potential traveler. Indeed, there is plenty to choose from:
- Cruise participants visit the cities of the Golden Ring of Russia, where they get acquainted with the past of our country. Historical museums of Uglich, temples of Yaroslavl, monasteries of Kostroma - such a number of sights and memorable places in one vacation is difficult to see on any other trip.
- One of the largest cruise routes on the Volga is the glorious hero city of Volgograd. The participants of the excursion visit the memorial sites associated with the heroic past of the city during the Great Patriotic War.
- The nature reserve in the Volga delta and the city of Astrakhan are another vivid impression on the guests of the motor ships. Birdwatching and great fishing, sugar Astrakhan watermelons and a sea of sun - all this is the hospitable Lower Volga.
- Acquaintance with Nizhny Novgorod takes travelers to the glorious times of the prosperity of the Russian merchants. The traditions of holding trade fairs are carefully preserved by modern Nizhny Novgorod residents, and therefore this city is the best place to buy souvenirs from a cruise for relatives and friends.
