From the Northern River Port a mini-cruise to Bukhta Radosty (Bay of Joy) makes an ideal day trip. The boat leaves the river port in the morning, makes a stop for around 5 hours at Bukhta Radosty, and then returns to Moscow. To get to Bukhta Radosty you will travel through the Moscow Canal, which was originally known as the Moscow-Volga Canal and was constructed between 1932 and 1937 using GULAG prisoner labour with tens of thousands of forced labourers dying in the process. The canal connects Moscow to the Volga thereby providing the city with water access to the White Sea, the Baltic Sea, the Caspian Sea, the Azov Sea and the Black Sea.
