  • In August 2014 year we carried out cruise on native storonushke-Volga. I want to share with you my impressions. Dignity: nature of the Volga region. Disadvantages: poor service, disorganized tours, a boring animation, minimum range in the bar, having a rest-for people over 60, an old steamer post-war buildings. And now in more detail. Planned cruise on native storonushke in six months: Yaroslavl-Volgograd through Nizhniy Novgorod-Samara-Kazan. However, because of the shallowing of the Volga route was changed to Moscow through Tver-Rybinsk-Chkalovsk and other small towns, what we learned only on the ship "cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. As it turned out, such force majeures-are not uncommon. True, first as a compensation for the tour to Nizhniy Novgorod was provided free of charge, in our case, it offered the highest price-1600 rub.

  • My assessment is very positive. Did the route St. Petersburg/Moscow by several rivers and lakes. The boat makes this trip accompanied by two others of the same category in order of case somebody accidentally grounded, could retrieve the trip. I traveled on the boat the Krasin Mosturflot, Leonid with narrow but clean and comfortable cabins with fridge, air conditioning and enough outlets to be loaded batteries. The bathrooms are not equipped with hair dryer, which can be rented. Has two restaurants and a panoramic bar, animation, library room, a large deck at the stern and two more small forward. Meals were of good quality without excessive quantity, Russian and international cuisine. There is animation throughout the journey however preferred to sit on decks and enjoy the scenery. Were visited several points of tourist interest considered by monuments either by natural beauty (Mandrogi, where I advise buying crafts, more expensive but of good quality, Khizi rayon, Goritsy, Uglich, Yaroslavl) Was still 3 days in St. Petersburg where I started the trip and 2 days in Moscow, where he had his order. If you want a relaxing trip where the sound of the water constantly and come in green eyes to refresh the view and the soul, do not miss it because it's worth
