    fancy ships are built there

    by globetrott Updated Dec 5, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Look at this fancy ship-construction ! It is obviously a restaurant that was constructed there in 2008 out of another thing and finally it will be transported on this ponton over the river to the place where it should go to.
    Gorodez is also a famous place for the construction and building of ships, and so we saw this strange construction docked next to our cruiseship M/S Furmanov. By now, in 2015 it should be fully functional somewhere in Russia, so maybe someone has seen it anywhere ?

    The Samowar-museum

    by globetrott Written Dec 5, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Samowar-museum in Gorodets is easy to be found, when you walk through town, close to the river, because it is inside one of the most beautifully decorated houses of Gorodez. Unfortunately I did not have enough time to get inside, but at least I could enjoy the great architecture of that blue and white building from outside.

    b.t.w. Samowar means „cooking by itself“
    The museum is open Monday till Friday
    between 10.00am and 05.00pm
    and Saturday & Sunday 10.00am - 04.00pm

    Dont miss the town-museum !

    by globetrott Updated Dec 5, 2015

    Dont miss the town-museum of Gorodets ! Here in my photos you will see a few of the best exhibits inside of the Town-museum of Gorodez: The best in my opinion is the wardrobe, that you can see on my 2nd and 3rd photograph. The boards on my 4th and 5th photo were use for spinning : they used to hold the wool.
    When you intend to take photographs inside the museum there is a photo-fee of 100 rubles.
    Inside the museum there is also a toilet, BUT only 1 single cabin for all ladies and gents, so there will be long lines when-ever a bus is there.

    the river-locks of Gorodets

    by globetrott Updated Dec 5, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you come to Gorodets on a cruise you will pass by these giant river-locks: The cruise-port of Gorodez was built in a small artificial lake between 2 locks and a lot of ships-trafic is passing through them in both ways. Russia had built a perfect system of artificial waterways between its various rivers and the only way to do that was building locks that will take the ships up or down to the other water-level. In the highest lock that we had passed through between Perm and Moscow the difference of the water-levels was 36 meters

    lots of beautiful houses

    by globetrott Updated Dec 5, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I absolutely did not expect to see such a beautiful village anywhere in Russia and these houses are even belonging to ordinary people and no multimillionaires and oligarchs.
    For hundreds of years the people of Gorodets are wellknown all over Russia for their great sense of art and the way that houses and things of everyday can be decorated in a great way.
