Journeys : Oct Nov 2012
Youcan’t go past Russia for amazing history, world-renowned arts and ballet, and a rich, diverse culture – and there’s no better way to explore than in a cruise ship on the country’s grand waterways. Inaccessible for decades after World War II, many of Russia’s previously hidden treasures are now on show including the nation’s best-k nown icon, St Basil’s Cathedral in the centre of Moscow. Dur ing your visit to St Petersburg you’ll enjoy Russia at its best with a private ballet concert, exclusively for Scenic Tours guests, at the Palace of Prince Vladimir. This was the last Imperial palace to be built in St Petersburg and with its authentic inter iors it is among the best preserved of any royal residence in the city. You’ll enjoy a glass of sparkling wine before marvelling at the colourful costumes and feeling the passion of the Russian people through music and dance. Enhance your cultural experience with a visit to the authentic old-world restaurant Podvorye, just outside Pushkin. The restaurant has established a reputation in St Petersburg and far beyond with a guest list of intellectuals and aristocrats, actors, sports figures, politicians and royals. You’ll love the Russian feast of home-grown produce and wine from the restaurant owner’s summer residence and v ineyard. The menu includes game from the hunting fields, classic Russian soups and an assortment of pickles, served with birch-bud, horseradish or cranberry vodka. A bear greets guests with a glass of vodka and while you feast you’ll enjoy traditional Russian folk music. Only Scenic Tours gives you exclusive features like these to make your Russian holiday an unforgettable experience.
