To get to Kronshtad we will take the metro from Chernaya Rechka and from there we will take the marshrutka bus to Kronshtad. The cost of the bus ticket is 80 rubles.
The trip back is made by bus or marshrutka bus to metro Chernaya Rechka or Staraya Derevnya.
In Kronshtad, we will visit the abandoned dry dock built in 1719 — 1759 for boat reparation.
We will see the stream gauging station, the place where all Russia measures the zero level of water.
We will visit the place where the Russian physicist, inventor of radio, Popov created his first radio in 1895.
We will see the building of the Holland Kitchen built in 1803 and the lighthouse of Tolbukhin built in 1719, which even today is an important landmark for ships.
During the visit we will come across parks and gardens.
We will visit the town beach and local canteens at request.
After the tour has finished there is an option to have a traditional Russian Banya. The authentic Banya is a favorite with the locals as it is much cheaper than in the city. Depending on the day of the week, it can be as low as 60 rubles.

Meeting place in front of exit from metro Chernaya Rechka.
