On the Moskva River "ikhtiandra" can appear


The capital government intends to buy ten excursion amphibian buses. For them it is planned to make several tourist routes of the Photo: DPA/TASS of Ikhtiandra can move as by land, and on water. Respectively also they are arranged in a hybrid way: the top part is executed, as at the regular bus, and lower — as at the boat, with a slanted bottom. Excursion buses of this type not a novelty and already ply on such cities as San Francisco, Toronto, Amsterdam and Hamburg. There is one similar "amphibian" in Budapest, the guide on the Hungarian capital Ekaterina Markova told: Ekaterina Markova is a guide across Budapest "Costs about 15-20 euros, goes daily. It is possible to look at something to whom it is interesting, maybe, will go by bus, then by it to swim for a while. There is it about ten years, during this time two times had to be saved, stopped on Danube". In the Netherlands of such amphibians it is much more. At a certain category of tourists they enjoy wide popularity, the director of travel agency AleGoTour from Amsterdam Oleg Aklas says: Oleg Aklas the director of travel agency AleGoTour "First of all it for tourists-tranzitnikov. From the airport the bus goes, then it drives to the canal. The excursion begins at the airport and in the same place comes to an end. Here it is more water, than the earth. This pleasure and rest. Such genre is unique, the city before you "dances", and you lie on a sofa, everything is simply remarkable". From whom exactly the Moscow authorities will buy "amphibians", it is not reported, but the price of buses of this kind of the American firm CAMI (Cool Amphibious Manufactures International), for example, begins from 650 thousand dollars (about 42 million rubles at a present course). For comparison: the city bus costs about 10-15 million rubles, depending on the sizes. According to the draft budget published on the website of the Moscow City Duma next year it is supposed to allocate to Mosgortrans a subsidy for purchase of amphibian buses of 350 million rubles, and then to annually pay 50 million on their contents. As a peculiar attraction of "ikhtiandra" can become quite popular with tourists. Only it is unclear why authorities of the capital have to pay it, same not transport, the director of City Projects fund Maxim Katz is perplexed: Maxim Katz the director of City Projects fund "It can be for tourists in demand. It with such speed stops by in the river, cool, but it is absolutely private travel business. It in any way not transport. Of course, from the Moscow authorities it will be become, they bought the electrobus. They can, of course, and start the airship, but it just madness if it is transport. In respect of tourism it is good piece, but the private companies roll on it tourists. As there go two-storeyed buses red on the city". One such Trolleyboat bus for the tourist purposes was bought by the private company "Russian Island" from Vladivostok this summer. The feature of a design of seaside "ikhtiandr" provides it special buoyancy and allows to operate in sea water. Добав
