Moskva River Cruises. Motor-ship Excursions

River bus services are popular with both Muscovites and visitors to the city. It is no wonder that people enjoy this pastime, since river buses offer spectacular views of the capital in all its glory. Go ahead and take a look at the old and new Moscow at any time of day!

Moskva River Cruises: Popular routes

The most popular route is in the heart of the capital. For example, you can start your route near the Kremlin and then go under the Krymsky Bridge past Sofiyskaya embankment or go from the Kievsky railway station to the Novospassky Bridge. You can also get aboard in Maryino, go past the Kolomenskoye Park and back. Another option is to start your trip somewhere near Rechnoy Vokzal (the North River Terminal) and cruise past Khimki Reservoir.

Motor-ship Excursions: Peculiarities

• You can get aboard a motor-ship every 20-25 minutes; in some places – every hour.

• Excursion time can range from half an hour (in the heart of the capital) to seven hours (e.g. with a stop on the beach in the Troitsky Administrative Area). The average time aboard the motor-ship is 1.5 – 2 hours.

• River transport season begins in the second half of April.

• Aboard some motor-ships there are cozy cafés and restaurants where you can relax and have lunch.

• Especially interesting routes are available in the evenings when you can admire the beauty of the glowing city.
