Two Moscow businessmen have created a cruise company Radisson Royal Moscow, the main service of which is the cruises along the Moscow River throughout the year. They will use five icebreaking icebreaking yachts for that.
Four vessels from them are the pleasure boats and the fifth one is specially equipped as a banquet hall. The route of the excursions will begin near the hotel Ukraina(one of the so-called Seven Sisters, the 'High Buildings' of Moscow, the skyscrapers that Stalin built in the late 40s and 50s.), where the levee was constructed especially for that, then the yacht turns back near the Novospassky monastery; the journey will finish on the same levee. Each vessel takes on board 200 persons; the first trip takes place already next week.
It is known that the businessmen have put up $ 10 millions in this project, and hope to warrant it in 10 years. The icebreaking equipment lets the pleasure vessels to function throughout the year, while the shipping on the Moscow River continues from April till October only.
Russia-InfoCentre offers you various kinds of excursions with professional guide servICe around Moscow and Saint Petersburg and journeys along the Trans-Siberian Railway.
