Land of the Firebird Tour 

 

Organized by Daniel Satinsky and featuring the participation of Ms. Suzanne Massie, author of Land of the Firebird.

This exclusive tour of the Russian Volga heartland will open up Russia to discriminating travelers who want more than a surface view. Seeing Moscow and St. Petersburg is far from a comprehensive look at Russia. The majority of Russians live in smaller cities where the culture of Russia took shape and where the future of modern Russia lies. Drawing on years of experience, Suzanne Massie and Daniel Satinsky will share their insight and personal understanding of Russian life with a select group of tourists through an in-depth exploration of the history, culture and contemporary life of the Yaroslavl Region.

Yaroslavl, older than Moscow and located on the banks of the Volga, will celebrate its 1000-year anniversary in 2010. Yaroslavl and the neighboring cities of Rostov the Great and Kostroma are the perfect location to explore the themes of the tour: artistic, craft, musical and cultural traditions; lifestyles of business people in the pre and post-Soviet eras; and the history and revival of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Of course, the tour will include magnificent historical buildings, churches and museums, linking these objects to the continuity of Russian culture, religion and crafts through the centuries. But, most importantly, there will also be active discussions with contemporary Russians – entrepreneurs, artists and students. Join Suzanne Massie and Daniel Satinsky in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Russia through the eyes of its own people.
