Upper Volga

4.3
Spreading across lush rural areas dotted with walled citadels, age-old monasteries, and quintessentially Russian onion domes, Upper Volga proudly showcases the country's cultural and architectural heritage to curious visitors. Historical towns of the famed "Golden Ring," such as Yaroslavl, Kostroma, and Rostov, serve as major sightseeing destinations and open-air museums drawing more than a million annual visitors. Still largely overlooked by foreign travelers, Nizhny Novgorod allows you to explore centuries of culture while at the same time enjoying all the amenities of a modern city. Storied traditions combined with natural beauty and relaxed small-town vibe is what an Upper Volga trip generously offers. Upper Volga is in Russia.
