Step aboard the paddle steamer Gogol built in 1911. You will see the river Northern Dvina banks and the city of Arkhangelsk, the first port of Russia, established four centuries ago. The city highlights will be explained by a guide in English over the PA system.
During two hours you will be aboard a paddle steamer which is 108 years old. The Gogol used to carry passengers and cargo from Arkhangelsk to Kotlas (600 km up the river). During the Allied Intervention (1918-1919) she was a hospital for Bolsheviks. In 1972 the paddle steamer was bought by a military enterprise in Severodvinsk and repaired. Since that time she has been carrying visitors along the River Northern Dvina. At a slow pace you will see the local area.
You will hear about the major city highlights described by a guide over the PA system. Moreover a short excursion to the engine room of the steamer will be arranged during the river tour.
