A great way to travel Russia is on a cruise along the Volga river. On the river tours you will experience the country’s top destinations. For those who want to study the rich history of Russia, the Kremlin in Moscow is the shining example of the country’s resilience. Contrary to popular belief, the Kremlin is not one building nor does it refer to the governing body. The Kremlin is 68 acres containing 20 towers and a wall between 11 and 21 meters thick that was built by Italians between 1485 to 1495. It’s here that historical figures such as Stalin, Lenin and Gorbachev walked.
