Want to travel some place unusual, some place not everyone you know has gone? How about Russia? Does the idea of a river cruise sound intriguing? Well, then this book may be for you. Marcy and Jon Ruesch describe their experiences traveling through Russia on a river cruise. In this book, they describe the magnificent sights they saw during a two week trip at the end of summer. They also give the pros and cons of a river cruise in that country so you can decide if that type of travel is for you. Marcy and Jon Ruesch have written several travel books featuring locations in both Europe and the U.S. In this book they detail the places they saw on a cruise from St. Petersburg, with visits to its many sights including the State Hermitage Museum; Catherine’s Palace; and Peterhof Palace, to Moscow with trips to the Kremlin, Cosmonaut Museum, and Jewish Museum. In between those two cities, they also visited: o Mandrogy with its unique souvenir stores and colorful houses (and even a 10 foot high felt boot!) o Kihzi Island with two wooden churches that make up a UNESCO World Heritage Site o The Kirillo-Belozersky Monastery near Goritzy with a collection of valuable medieval icons o The town of Yaroslavl with picturesque vistas o Uglich with a church built on the spot where 10-year old Tsarevich Dmitry died under questionable circumstances in 1584 Their experiences in these locations are just some of the events covered in their fascinating new book. So sail with Marcy and Jon, view their photographs, and decide if a Russian river cruise should be added to your travel bucket list.
