From St. Petersburg, the Viking Surkov cruised along Russia’s intricate waterways. We sailed first on the Neva River, then across Lake Ladoga, Europe’s largest lake. Then we cruised the Svir River to Mandrogy (left and below), a model Russian community built on the foundations of the original town, which was destroyed in World War II. After passengers visited Mandrogy, we continued along the Svir’s 139-mile “Blue Route” toward Lake Onega, Europe's second largest lake.
