Information About Russia's Ports

Whether you are looking for trade and transport options between yourself and Russian clients or you are looking for alternate forms of travel when touring the country, Russia has many ports that you might consider using. To start with, the country has some 37 653 kilometers of coastline. Thus, shipping is already a widely used form of transport that caters to both national and international needs and so it is frequently used by local and foreign companies.

In addition to the vast stretch of coastline enjoyed by this country, there are a number of large inland water areas - such as Lake Baikal, the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea - that can be accessed from Russia. Visitors wishing to gain access at places such as the Caspian or Black Sea may want to consider catching a boat that berths at one of the Russian ports in those places. In addition to this, the country is criss-crossed by a large number of rivers that provide an excellent medium of transport. Unfortunately some of these rivers are frozen over during the winter months and so are not always accessible. However many of them remain usable throughout the year. These rivers are accessed by inland ports that are situated on the banks of the river at various towns and they provide an attractive alternative to the trans-Siberian railway or air transport.

So if you are looking for a way to ship goods or just searching for an alternate form of transport, we have provided a basic description of several of the country’s ports for your convenience. The ports that we have chosen are located around the country and vary in shape, size and nature. So whether you are looking for the Nakhodka Commercial Sea Port, the Port of St Petersburg, the Port of Sochi or the Port of Kazan, simply click on our link and read all about them. It is that simple! And we have covered more ports than just those few mentioned here. So have a look at our selection of ports and choose the one you want. We hope that the brief information that we have provided on these ports will prove to be most helpful to you.
