June, 29 Bobruisk pleasure steamboat “Mechta” (“Dream”) starts traveling down the Berezina River to celebrate the Day of Bobruisk Township. The information is provided by Anatoly Avramchik, the deputy director of “Vodokanal” enterprise.
According to Anatoly Avramchik, the pleasure steamboat “Mechta” was supposed to be launched on the Victory Day. But there were difficulties dealing with the engine being delivered from Barnaul.
Formerly the steamboat belonged to Dnepro-Berezensky Steamship Company. Then it broke down and was going to be discarded. But instead of this the steamboat was transferred to Bobruisk “Vodokanal”. The pleasure steamboat “Mechta” is 52 years old. But new materials and modern technologies made a miracle. The steamboat’s passenger capacity is about 120 persons. The steamboat will make 6 voyages a day. It will travel from the resort centre named after Lenin to Bely Bereg. The voyage will last for an hour and cost Br10 thousand.
