On the Volga River

Our cruise from Moscow to St. Petersburg offered many hours of sitting on deck and watching the passing scenery (it didn't get dark until almost eleven at night), beautiful sunsets, lots of families swimming in the clean river, and old towns and industrial facilities. We passed through roughly 20 huge locks. Our boat was very modern and comfy. A couple of nice bars, two restaurants, friendly crew and a few signs of Russian bureaucracy and regulations (evident as our leaders tried to change some restaurant procedures, which they did). All in all very relaxing, particularly after hoofing around for hours in high heat. Scroll down a bit to see each image in its entirety.
