Astra Marine Group has completed modernization of recreational ship Neva-2 that was named Koryushka. As Andrei Kuznetsov, Director General of Astra Marine Group, told IAA PortNews, Saint-Petersburg’s only floating pub started regular voyages between Admiralteiskaya embankment 2 and the berth on the Yelagin island on 12 June 2017.
A round voyage stars every two hours from the Central Pier.
The refurbished vessel with an onboard pub travels along the most picturesque places of Saint-Petersburg.
The idea of the route is to offer a comfortable link between the city center, its resort area and the Primorsky district.
The vessel is one of the six floating restaurants in Saint-Petersburg: Volga-Volga (Ginza project), Talisman, Festival and three vessels operated by Astra Marine Group (Astra, City-Blues and Koryushka).
“We are sure that water gastronomy tourism will develop in Saint-Petersburg, marine capital of Russia, as a special tourist product”, said Andrei Kuznetsov.
Established in 1994, Astra Marine Group now operates a fleet of 17 passenger ships including 8 high-speed vessels operating on Saint-Petersburg-Peterhoff and Saint-Petersburg-Kronshtadt routes.
