Cruising along the Russia’s Volga River, Europe’s largest and longest waterway, holds a special place in Russian history and in the hearts and minds of the Russian people. An important aquatic “highway” since Medieval times, the Volga has long served as a major route of trade, settlement and conquest. Peter the Great sailed along the Volga from Moscow to St. Petersburg approximately 300 years ago on a quest to bring Russia out of the Dark Ages. And centuries worth of Russian music and literature reflect the people’s deep feeling for the river.
