Another way to see the city's beauty is to go round its river on one of these boats.
An outing on the river.
Either during the day, or at night, an outing round the Moskva River that stretches over 100 kilometres is the perfect choice for getting to know the city and its history in more depth. There are several companies offering this service, and you'll feel like a Muscovite on board their boats as you enjoy the views, monuments, and the beautiful shore. Most cruises set off from the Kiyevskiy station where the metro can take you, and depending on which route you prefer, you can visit one part of the city or another. With the Capital Shipping Company (www.cck-ship.ru), you can enjoy an outing for 450 rubles, or you can get off at any of the stops and then board again when you want to throughout the whole day for 800 rubles. A perfect option for discovering the city at your own pace!
