River voyage from Moscow to St Petersburg is 1338 km long.

The journey to the Baltic Sea coast begins from Moscow (North River-boat Station). The steam ship begins to move through Moscow channel and then, near Dubna town, enters Volga river.
There are situated two small towns - Uglich or Myshkin and Yaroslavl. Apart from historical attractions, these are nice, quiet provincial towns.

Then we will enter the Russian North with its endless virgin beauties. Our first stop here will be in Goritsy village that is situated close to three old and beautiful monasteries – Kirillo-Belozersky (1397), Ferapontov (1490) and Goritsky (1544). This place was the center of Christianity in Russia. Near Beloye lake, further on our itinerary, is situated Belozersk town (founded in 862). There you will admire walls of ancient Kremlin, nice XIX-century city houses, wooden pavements, flooded church and amazing sunsets on the lake.

Endless lake Onezhskoye (250 km long) lies ahead, with legendary Kizhi island. Famous open-air museum of wooden architecture is a treasury of fabulous old Russian North heritage. It’s not for nothing that during Second World War a pilot commanded to destroy the museum by bombing, when having seen 22 wooden crowns of Transfiguration church, refused to carry the order and turned his plane back.

From Onezhskoye lake we will lay a course to Ladoga by Svir river. Mandrogi village is the main attraction in these places. Here you will enjoy open-air dinner, visit folklore show and witness the daily labors of blacksmiths, potters and carpenters. Another famous north monastery – Aleksandro-Svirsky (1484) – is situated nearby.

The next step will be Ladozhskoye lake, the largest in Europe. It is known by its islands, especially Valaam with its old monastery. But there are also two very interesting islands on Ladozhskoye lake. First, Konevets island, holds old monastery and well-known Kon-stone. This stone, that looks not unlike a giant horse, was used by ancient local tribes as an altar for their rituals.

Finally, on the spot where Neva river takes off Ladozhskoye lake, you will see Orekhovy island aka Shlisselburg. This fortress has never been taken in all its history. This will be your last stop before arrival to the Northern capital.

Please note, that if you have chosen the one-side (from Moscow to St Petersburg or vice versa) trip it will take 6-7 days.
Those who would like to enjoy the beauties of both Russian capitals may choose our trips with 2 or 3-night stays in both Moscow and St Petersburg.

Our tours are provided only with three and four-deck steam ships that are able to heave out into Ladozhskoye and Onezhskoye lakes.

Thus, this voyage will not only be a trip from St Petersburg to Moscow or vice versa, but it presents itself separate most interesting tour including visits to ancient Russian towns, monasteries and fortresses.
