One of our favourite destinations here at Scandi Travel is St Petersburg. Known by many as “Venice in the North”, it is a timeless city which offers a unique taste of imperial Russia, the traditional land of the Tsars.
In 2019, Scandi Travel’ Russia visa-free cruises to visit St Petersburg will commence operating from March 28th. With some slight amendments to the ferry schedule, we are delighted to now offer some new features for our cruise packages.
