Take a Boat Ride

Boat cruises along the Moscow River have begun again. Although the most popular route runs from Kievskaya to Novospassky Bridge, there is a variety of options for river cruises, both in the center of Moscow and in the suburbs. Boats between Kievskaya and Novospassky run every 20 minutes from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and make several stops along the way. Boats making a trip from Kolomenskoye to Brateyevo leave every hour from 12:30, also stopping at Marino, and boats making a round trip to Strogino, turning around at Troitse-Lykovo run every hour and a half between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. Two night cruises make a round trip from Kievskaya, turning around at Krymsky Bridge. They leave at 9:40 and 10:20 and last an hour and a half. Tickets cost 300 rubles for adults and 150 rubles for children between the ages of six and 12. The ticket price is the same regardless of where you disembark. Tickets can be purchased at the dock or through the company's web site.

The boats are also available for rent for parties or group tours starting at 5,600 rubles an hour for a minimum of two hours. The company also provides catering.
