Best Time for a Russian Cruise
There has never been a better time to visit Russia! This country is experiencing a surge of growth and stability as it sheds the mysteriousness that cloaked it behind the Iron Curtain. The streets abound with vibrancy and life, the cities boom with culture - come witness Russia’s revival!
Our river cruises are dictated by the seasons. Due to the rivers freezing in Russia’s frigid winter, the routes run from May to September. If you book a St. Petersburg tour during late June or early July you will experience the Midnight Sun, the phenomena when the sun does not entirely set at night. While St. Petersburg and Moscow dip into winter by September, the more southern Rostov-on-Don and Astrakhan blossom in beautiful golden displays of autumn.
Only you can decide the best time to visit Russia. Is it during the coolness of spring, the warmth of the summer, or the crisp chill of early autumn? Whatever your decision, we have a trip, a Russian river cruise, that will fit your Russian fantasies!
