River cruise is one of the best ways of learning more about architecture and history of the city. There are no traffic jams, no exhaust fumes, just comfort and convenience. From the ship board you will be able to take the most breath-taking pictures, to see the city in a new way, enjoy its panorama and pictiresque landscape. Moscow residents and foreigners started using this kind of transport-sightseeing sixty years ago, and it is still up-to-date.
