Russian Train Journey
Starting from the North-West region of Russia with a visit to the splendid St. Petersburg and beautiful Karelia we move to the central part of European Russia and explore vigorous Moscow and ancient Golden Ring towns. Our trip continues to the Volga River, the largest river in Europe, our Mother Volga as Russians call it. We will see this magnificent river twice – in Nizhny Novgorod, the largest city in the Volga region, and later meet it again in Kazan. The train will take you to the Ural Mountains, the oldest mountains in the world bordering Europe and Asia, where we visit Perm town and Kungur ice caves. Returning to the East European plain, we travel to the capital of Tatarstan Republic - Kazan, the city where Orthodox and Muslim cultures elegantly twist together. Finally, we come to the south of Russia and gorgeous mountains in the Northern Caucasus where you will feel the authentic southern culture and life.
