Moscow circumnavigation 2022


Featured Posts

Hi all!

In summer holidays of 2022 i took a trip on my boat along the route named "Moscow circumnavigation". This is a circular river route in a central Russia.

I started this route on Oka river then went down this river to its confluence with the Volga river, then climbed the Volga to its connection with the Moscow Canal which connect Volga river with Moscow river which flows through the city of Moscow and flows into the Oka.

This trip is 2221 kilometers long and ~250 engine hours.

I've walked this route four times, first time in 1992 on the same boat.

I put English subtitles in the video.

Video speeded up four times with the exception of fragments with a text description of the area.

 

Any questions are welcome!

 

First day:

 

Second day:

 

Next days is upcoming.

That looks a bit more adventurous than my tourist boat trip around the waterways of St Petersburg about 10 years ago.

 

However at the moment it's not an ideal time for anyone from the UK wanting to visit Russia. If you look on the Foreign Office website under 'travel advice' the whole of Russia is marked in red as off-limits. We can still go and ignore the advice of course (Russian tourist visa permitting), but finding travel insurance that covers you for anywhere that the FO has advised against travel would be very difficult.

 

Anyway, they are interesting videos, thanks.

 Indeed, but one of the great advantages of videos like this, especially with my health problems, is that I don't have to go! I can now enjoy the waterways of Russia vicariously on the box :) 

 

Thanks @vasya for the videos

Здравствуйте

 

Yes, I guessed you were Russian from your name, but this is a UK forum so my comments were aimed at anyone here who was interested in boating on your waterways.

Splendid!

 

FYI - about once a week this is my evening "television" watching (I only get to watch TV once or twice a week anyway) - your videos beat Bangers and Cash anytime :D

Hi all!

A small digression from the topic.

I present to you a video from my six-day voyage to the city of Kaluga, which I took in May of this year.

The city of Kaluga is the place where navigation on the Oka River begins.
