River Cruise on the Volga departing from Zavidovo

The small Russ­ian town of Zavi­do­vo is a pop­u­lar loca­tion for house boat hire as it offers a vari­ety of pos­si­bil­i­ties. From Zavi­do­vo you can head west to dis­cov­er the city of Tver or head east and cruise from vil­lage to vil­lage. Make a stopover in Dub­na, where you can admire the giant stat­ue of Lenin, one of the largest in the world. Then cruise to Kalyazin, to con­tem­plate one of the great­est curiosi­ties of the Vol­ga : the flood­ed bell tow­er of the Saint-Nico­las cathedral.

House Boat Rental to explore another facet of Russia

We are famil­iar with the great emblem­at­ic mon­u­ments of Rus­sia, such as the “ Red Square” and the “ Krem­lin”. The riv­er cruise allows you to dis­cov­er anoth­er face of this coun­try, authen­tic and colour­ful. On the banks of the Vol­ga Riv­er, you will be sur­prised by the grandiose nat­ur­al land­scapes of the land of the Tsars, but also by the typ­i­cal Russ­ian archi­tec­ture, with its flam­boy­ant colours.

Boat rental on the Vol­ga is also very pop­u­lar with fish­er­men and water sports enthu­si­asts. There are many places along your route to live your pas­sion or try new experiences.


Cruis­ing on the Vol­ga is only done with a skip­per. The price of the skip­per is already includ­ed in the rental price. How­ev­er, you will need to pro­vide a cab­in for him.
