  • It's a well-designed cruise that allows to see the Volga with its villages, its locks in a pleasant way. A very beautiful villages with guides who could inform us, to share the life of the inhabitants. It is a very beautiful region full of history. Titanic construction, how many men worked there, some died from exhaustion. It was under Stalin, there is nothing to add at this time, we couldn't show, were all classmates!
