Jewels of Russia with Scenic

Once described by Winston Churchill as “a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma”, Russia has long harboured a sense of intrigue among cultured travellers. Join Scenic for an exclusive river cruise on the country’s slow-flowing Volga, and begin to unravel the mysteries and secrets of this multi-layered nation.

Russia’s magnificent cultural history and rich folklore beckon on a journey along the Volga River as you discover the timeless cities and remote villages of a bygone era. We welcome you aboard Scenic Tsar, and into the beating heart of this captivating country.

Intimate and friendly, Scenic Tsar provides an incomparable blend of luxury, comfort and cultural immersion. From the moment you step on board, your Cruise Director and every member of our hospitable crew are committed to impeccable service and making your time on Scenic Tsar truly unforgettable.

Launched in 2013, Scenic Tsar was the first new-build river cruise ship introduced to the waters of Russia for over 25 years, marking a new era of luxury river travel on the Volga. At 204 metres in length and with a guest capacity of just 112, this handsome ship offers a real sense of space without forgoing intimacy, comfort and style.

With a collection of 56 generously-sized suites, the majority of which benefit from a balcony, and a range of tantalising dining venues; Scenic Tsar is your luxury home-from-home as you set out on an unforgettable tour of the wonders of Russia.
