Northern River-Boat Station

Northern River-Boat Station

Northern River-Boat Station was built at the same time as the Moscow Canal in 1937 on the bank of Khimkinskoye storage pond. An elegant weightless building with a tower and a spire, crowned with a gold and red five-pointed star. The star was set on the Spasskaya Tower of the Moscow Kremlin from 1935 to 1937. Local, excursion and pleasure routes are serviced by high-speed hydrofoil crafts and passenger motor ships.

I contacted Arthur as recommended by a user on the Lonely Planet Thorntree forum. My nephew and I had a 9 hour layover at Moscow's Sheremetyevo 2 airport while traveling from a primary vacation in the Middle East. We preferred to tour Moscow rather than sit at the airport for 9 hours. I arranged for Arthur to pick me up at the airport and provide a quick tour of the major attractions. I realized this was risky given Moscow's notorious traffic problems. Our flight landed an hour late in Moscow. I called Arthur while still on the plane on the runway ready to cancel the arrangements because of the late arrival. However, he convinced me that we still had enough time. He took back roads into Moscow to avoid the horrendous freeway traffic and was still able to provide us with a two hour + walking tour of the Red Square/Kremlin area with a quick Metro tour thrown in. Arthur definitely knows the city well--both from a historical and navigational standpoint. I am glad he convinced me to leave the airport--the short tour was definitely a highlight of our week. I would definitely use him again and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a driver and/or tour guide in Moscow.
