“There is not enough information on this project, there is no specifics - where the new berths will be. At the moment, there are berths in the Vologda region in Cherepovets, in Vytegra, in the Kirillovsky district and in Sheksna. We also use some of them as part of our cruises. As a tour operator, it would be interesting for us to go to Belozersk, one of the oldest cities in Russia, where you can look at old temples and monasteries, admire the beauty of Beloye Lake. We have been talking about the need for a berth in Belozersk for several years already, "Svetlana Goncharova, Deputy General Director for Tourism of the Mosturflot cruise company, told ATOR Vestnik.
The need for a berth for entering Belozersk is also confirmed by the Vodokhod cruise company.

There are interesting display objects in Belozersk, but we can only take our tourists there by buses during long stops in Cherepovets or Goritsy, which are very few for navigation, ”the Vodokhod press service said.
Currently, all flights of Vodokhod from Moscow and the regions to St. Petersburg pass through the territory of the Vologda Region.
