Vodohod is the largest river cruise line operator in Russia which was established in 2004 by Volga Shipping Company named after the “water-going vessel” (“water-goer”) of Ivan Kulibin (1735-1818), a Russian mechanic and inventor. The company has its headquarters in Saint Petersburg and Moscow. After the merger with Volga Flot Tour, the company operates over 50 passenger ships along the rivers Don, Volga, Kama, Moscow and Volga-Don canals, Northern-Western rivers, Volga-Baltic Waterway, lakes Ladoga and Onega.

Nikolay Chernyshevsky ship is equipped with modern navigation devices and reaches the speed up to 26 km/h (around 17 MpH). The ship offers outside staterooms, all air-conditioned and affording majestic views of the countryside. Laundry service is available for guests' comfort. The two dining rooms offer both Russian and Continental cuisine, as well as specialities of the regions visited, all served in a friendly atmosphere. There are also two bars, souvenir shop, dance hall, music room, fitness room, sauna and solarium. Parties, games and dancing all serve to ensure a memorable vacation. From sweeping sundecks to spacious lounges, this unique floating hotel offers journeys of distinction. 

On every Nikolay Chernyshevsky cruise there is an accredited guide, who fills passengers in on the mythology, art and history of the ports visited so travellers take a greater understanding of Russia. Entertainment onboard the Nikolay Chernyshevsky ship includes live performances of classical and Russian folk music, as well as activities introducing passengers to Russian history and culture, like lessons in Russian dancing, singing and nesting doll painting. For another taste of Russia, guests can also experience vodka tasting and Russian tea ceremony.
