This light-hearted, beautifully illustrated and informative talk takes you on a breath-taking journey from St. Petersburg to Moscow on the Waterways of the Tsars, through the grand lakes, rivers, and canals of Russia.
Part 2 Mandrogy to Moscow, takes us from the River Neva out of St. Petersburg, through Lake Ladoga, the largest lake in Europe, down the Volga river and the Waterways of the Tsars stopping at some of the gems of Russian culture along the way. Finally arriving in Moscow, with the Kremlin and the iconic St. Basil’s Cathedral, the Talk includes a tantalising tour of the fabulous Underground Stations of Moscow amongst other hidden treasures.

Meet the Host, Rukshana
Rukshana spent her childhood in India, had a thoroughly British education and went on to train as a Fashion Designer in the USA. She married and moved to England in 1970. In the 1990s, she and her husband with their two young sons, decided to buy a little ruin in France to do up as a holiday project. This led to many hilarious adventures, which were the basis for her book ‘As it Happens, A Sparkling Adventure through life on the Bright Side’.
Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy your Mirthy event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
