Description

Visit two capitals of Russia in one shore excursion! Meet a company representative in the morning, catch a high-speed train to Moscow to explore the capital of Russia. In Moscow, you will have a city tour, walk on the Red Square, lunch and explore Kremlin and its cathedrals with a local guide. Enjoy some spare time for picture taking, shopping and a coffee stop before you take the train back to St Petersburg. Throughout the duration of the day-trip to Moscow you will be escorted by the company representative, from meeting at the port in the morning until returning back in the evening. On the second day, you will explore the highlights of St Petersburg, such as Peterhof, the Hermitage, and the Church on the Spilled Blood. Take a romantic boat ride along the canals before you return back to the cruise ship.
