Itinerary:

Day 1  : Kazan

Welcome to Russia, welcome to our magnificent ship Mustai Karim! You will spend the morning getting to know your fellow travelers, sharing an exquisite lunch, which is served for you in the restaurant on the main deck.

Day 2  : Sviyazhsk

You’ll be invited to a sightseeing walking tour of Sviyazhsk, an ancient town, often compared to the island of Buyan from Pushkin’s fairy tale. People come here for the
beautiful panoramic views, and also to see ancient monasteries and a lifetime portrait of Ivan the Terrible. According to legend, Ivan the Terrible liked Sviyazhsk when he was returning to Moscow in 1551 after an unsuccessful assault on Kazan. The island seemed to
him a convenient strategic point, and it was decided to build here a fortress.

Day 3  : Cheboksary

Today you’ll enjoy the bus city tour in the capital of the Republic of Chuvashia, located on the right bank of the Volga river – the town Cheboksary. Over the five hundred-year history, the city has seen the rebels of Ivan Bolotnikov, the freemen of Stepan Razin, and
the squads of Emelyan Pugachev. Monuments of architecture are organically combined with the modern enbankment, decorated with a lattice with a national ornament.

Day 4  : Nizhny Novgorod and Gorodets

Explore one of the most beautiful cities in the world during bus city tour. Nizhny Novgorod is called the “Volga capital”. The city was founded in 1221 as a fortress on the
right bank of the Volga river at the place where it merged with the Oka river. The city is rich in architectural monuments. The main one is the Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin, on the territory of which there is the Archangel Cathedral, the existing Annunciation and Pechersky Monasteries, the Christmas Church, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and many other monuments. The city is a large industrial, cultural and transport center of the

Gorodets is one of them, a lovely town, the oldest one in the Nizhny Novgorod region. Colorful wooden houses with carved architraves, many museums, a well-groomed embankment and world-famous gingerbread houses - this place can surprise anyone.

Day 5  : Yaroslavl

Discover the capital of the Golden Ring cities, Yaroslavl. Its architectural masterpieces, streets and green squares hold 1000 years of history.

Day 6  : Koprino and Uglich

After spending the morning enjoying a relaxing leisure time in Koprino, you’ll arrive in Uglich, an ancient town filled with brightly coloured architecture. Its Kremlin and the Church of St. Dmitry are particularly famous – the church’s fascinating history is tied to the life and death of Ivan the Terrible’s son.

Day 7  : Disembark in Moscow

After a relaxing dinner onboard, you’ll disembark from the Mustai Karim. We hope you’ve had a wonderful journey on board with us, and we hope to see you again soon!
