This year navigation on Moscow River begins a little later, when usually, on April, 15 because of long-drawn winter. Solemn ceremony of opening a new season will take place even on April, 21 at South Riverside Station, in the picturesque landscapes of Kolomenskoye park.

The routes of Moscow water buses are:
Kievsky Railway Station - Novospassky Bridge, Kolomenskoye - Maryino - Brateevo - Kolomenskoye, Gorky Park - Novospassky Bridge - Gorky Park, Borobyovy Gory - Kotelnicheskaya levee - Borobyovy Gory, Luzhkov Bridge - Peter I the Great monument - Kremlin - Novospassky Bridge - Luzhkov Bridge, Novospassky Bridge - Bolshoy Ust'insky Bridge, ParkKultury - Bolshoy Ust'insky Bridge, Estrada Theatre - Park Cultury - Estrada Theatre, Kievsky Railway Station - Crymsky Bridge - Kievsky Railway Station.

There are other routes with excursion programs, but they are longer and weren't yet announces for this year. For example, there are routes from city centre to beaches of Serebryany bor, very popular in summer time, moreover: these beaches are easier to get by water that by public transport or car.
