Moscow / Uglich / Yaroslavi / Goritsy / Kizhi Island / St. Petersburg / Tallinn / Riga / Vilnius / Kaunas Trip
This Moscow post is the start of open Jaw trip starting in Moscow, Russia and flying home from Kaunas, Lithuania. We took a riverboat cruise from Moscow to St. Petersburg then flew to Tallinn, Estonia. We picked up a rental car in Tallinn and drove to Vilnius, Lithuania. I'll make separate posts for each leg and a couple of great stops in between.
Walking up to and through the Resurrection Gate into Red Square and seeing Saint Basil's Cathedral in the distance was exciting and worth the trip in itself.
