Viking River Cruises got its start in Russia, so we know it well. Today, we operate the finest fleet on the nation's vast network of waterways—the Volga and Svir Rivers and the expansive lakes of Onega and Ladoga among them. Historic Moscow and canal-laced St. Petersburg highlight any visit. Beyond, Russia's tranquil banks are lined with idyllic forests, potato and beet fields, open plains and the impressive green-domed churches of Uglich and Yaroslavl.
