To complement your onshore excursions, take part in Viking’s Cultural Highlights—immersive learning and enhancement activities both on board and ashore:
• Traditional Russian or Ukrainian tea
• Russian cuisine workshop
• Russian or Ukrainian ballet or opera performance
• Cossack horsemanship show
These in-depth experiences are included as an essential part of discovering more about the places through which you cruise, and each activity is planned specifically to illuminate each itinerary.
Sometimes you want to dig a little deeper. We offer a series of onboard multimedia talks to shed light on the history and culture of the places you visit. Learn about:
• The Romanov czars
• History of Russia or Ukraine
• Putin and Democracy
• Vikings in Europe
• Key words and phrases in the local language
These presentations provide a context for your own observations, enhancing your travel experience.
