Description The Volga River winds its way from Moscow to St. Petersburg through small villages steeped in history. It is truly a 'journey of the Czars'. Due to its location, Russia experiences 'White Nights' during the summer when sunsets are late and the sun rises early. The annual White Night cultural festival in St. Petersburg draws over a million visitors each year from May-July.
