Full description
Depart from Patriarchiy Pier next to the famous Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the largest of the Russian Orthodox churches. Sail through Moscow and admire the city's best-loved landmarks, including the Moscow Kremlin (a symbol of the Russian statehood, one of the largest architectural ensembles of the world), Saint Basil's Cathedral, Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Building and many more. The cruise lasts about 1 hour. There are no stops on the route. The undeniable advantage: the route is circular and the pier is conveniently located in the heart of the city. As this is a round trip, the boat will return to the starting point near Kropotkinskaya metro Station.

I'd do it again

I would recommend the cruise. A way to relax after visiting the historic center, perhaps before visiting the Pushkin museum! Relax and eat a slice of Russian cake or dine al fresco looking at the Kremlin from another point of view. The pier is a stone's throw from the Kremlin, departures are frequent and you don't have to book it and the duration of the cruise is enough to be satisfied!
