Cruise on the Volga River – Tutayev

Tutayev (until 1918 – Romanov-Borisoglebsk) is a historical town with a population of about 40,000 people located in the Yaroslavl region. It is one of the towns included in the famous tourist route known as the Golden Ring of Russia.

This town, standing on both banks of the Volga River, appeared as a result of the merger of two towns – Romanov and Borisoglebsk located on opposite banks. You can visit Tutayev during a cruise on the Volga River. Photos by: Sergey Rubtsov.
