  • International Benefit Arena Football Competition “Marina and River Transport Cup” 24.04.2017 International Benefit Arena Football Competition “Marina and River Transport Cup”

    On the 15th and 16th of April 2017 the International Benefit Arena Football Competition “Marine and River Transport Cup” has taken place on the football pitch of the Moscow Spartak academy.

    This sport event of such level is already the second one in Russia and it was held with support of the Federal Agency of Marine and River Transport (Rosmorrechflot), Federal State Unitary Enterprise “Rosmorport” and the sport agency “Liga Victory”.

    Among the participants there were not only representatives from Moscow and Moscow region but from the other parts of Russia such as the cities of Astrakhan and Tuapse, from Tverskaya region and even from the Northern part of the country. In total there were 16 teams and of course the team of the “Vodohod” company was there as well.

    We have taken part in this competition not for the first time and after the two days of the sport event it is needless to say that both the players and spectators have had a really great time despite the nasty weather.

    We are also happy to say that the “Vodohod” sport fans were so supportive and encouraging that they have won the first place prize – the football winner cake!

    The “Vodohod” team thanks all the participants for the great tournament!

Representative of LLC “Vodohod” provided the forum participants with detailed information about Russian river cruises, Vodohod fleet, itineraries, program and new projects of the company such as renovation of MS Kronshtadt to 4 star level and building of brand new 5 star ship Prince Vladimir.

    We expect positive results of the forum and increase of Norwegian guests on board of Vodohod ships.

We had a wonderful holiday cruising down the Volga river on Lev tolstoy travelling from Moscow to St Petersburg.The ship is owned by a Russian company called vodohod.They have several ships.We booked a junior suite which was slightly bigger than standard rooms.Bathroom was a small cubicle with shower,toilet and wash basin. Everything was very clean .The food was exceptional. The staff and guides were very friendly and helpful.We met people from France,Spain Germany, China and few from UK. We were divided into different language groups with a guide for each group. We visited few small towns and villages along the way. Wifi was available at the library area .There was some entertainment on board.

This cruise and visit to Moscow and St Petersburg made me think that everything you hear about Russia on newspapes is not true.Communism is gone and people are like anybody else. Only thing is they are not much exposed to foreigners mainly due to language problems but in tourist places they all spoke English ..
