Day 2  : Uglich and Myshkin

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.

Colorful wooden houses with carved architraves, many museums, a well-groomed embankment and world-famous gingerbread houses - this place can surprise anyone. In the afternoon, 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

Monuments of architecture are organically combined
with the modern embankment, decorated with a lattice with a national ornament.

Day 6  : Kazan

After spending the morning enjoying the scenery from the ship’s board, arrive to the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan - Kazan. The appearance of the city is determined by a mixture of Russian and eastern colors. The tops of the old churches, the belfry towers and the slender needles of the minarets are high above the modern buildings. For
more than four centuries, Kazan has surrounded the white stone walls of the Kremlin, a UNESCO monument. The Peter and Paul Cathedral, the Mardzhani Mosque (XVIII century) and the Azimov Mosque (XIX century) are unique and inimitable; they are worth seeing. One of the oldest universities in Russia was founded in Kazan, where N. Lobachevsky, A. Butlerov and V. Bekhterev worked. Get to know the town with a thousand year history during the bus city tour and visit to the Kremlin.

Day 8  : Saratov

On the right bank of the Volga lies the ancient Russian city of Saratov surrounded by three high mountains. The city was founded as a watch fortress in 1590, initially on the left bank of the Volga river.
