Near Moscow, the Dolgoprudnyi base allows boaters to discover the
beauty of Russian landscapes while
crossing monumental locks that alone are worth the detour. A real
water city, Moscow is connected to 5 seas thanks to the canal : The
White Sea, the Baltic Sea, the Caspian Sea, the Sea of Azov and the
Black Sea, which earned it the nickname "port of the five seas".
The Kalyazin base, further north, offers the possibility to cruise on the
Volga River. This beautiful river and its enchanting landscapes have
inspired many artists: writers, painters and lyricists. In Kalyazin itself,
you will be astounded by the old St Nicolas church, now flooded, but
which still stands proudly splitting the waters with its belfry.
This cruise will obviously be an opportunity to discover a varied and
rich architectural heritage, witness to the history of Great Russia. As far
as gastronomy is concerned, the locals will want to help you discover
their simple and generous cuisine: no eccentricity, but like the cooks
themselves, attached to the basics : taste and character.
