Relaxation at sea

Russia’s former capital is simply incredible – and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, too.

On a tour* of the Hermitage, you will be guided through selected rooms containing the best works of art by European masters. The restored legendary Amber Room sparkles in the Catherine Palace*.
