Murmansk Passenger Port Opens After Reconstruction

Long-distance pier of passenger lines opened in the seaport of Murmansk after its reconstruction, as “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” reported. Now the port will be able to take in even the ocean cruise liners.

      The development of tourism in the Arctic is one of the main objectives of the project on creation of the Arctic Murmansk harbor. In addition, the task is set to develop sea passenger transportation in the region.

      The Administration of Murmansk Oblast reported that the pier reconstruction would increase the number of visits of foreign cruise ships to the port from six to seventy per year. The renovated passenger port will be able to serve 70 thousand people annually. The updated pier became longer by more than 50 meters. Its length after the reconstruction amounts to 206 meters, and its width - to about 20 meters, as “Murmansky Vestnik” specifies.
