15 Moscow Channel In Soviet Times

Moscow Channel In Soviet Times

Posted on January 24, 2011 by team

A compilation of the pictures from booklets and magazines devoted to the work of the Moscow Channel in Soviet times. This is a period of time from the 60s to the 80s. Here you can see not only the channel itself, ships and cargoes but also wonderful views on different districts of Moscow and even some photographs of the Soviet girls in bikini.

Ships are coming up to the channel. On the left is a motor ship of the Volgo-Don type, on the right is Rechnoy, and the third one, Meteor, is on her way.

    Ha! The local NPR station here was booking a “Russian River Cruise” this month to send contributers over to Moscow. If I wasn’t a poor peasant I could have actually seen Red Square and the Moscow/Volga Rivers. Guess this post will have to be my cruise. :-(

    Pic. no. 5 – we went to Moscow with school excursion by this kind of ship. It was in 1986. That was awesome! A week travel without parents!

    I may be wrong but Soviet Society looked better during the communist era than the wasteland it seems to have turned into these days!

    • you're right says:

      You’re right, but that’s like saying a US military base “looks better” than a city park. Of course it does, but who wants to live that way?
