Kiel-Russia 25 years of ferry ties

In 2016, we quite often wrote about various anniversaries, even devoting an entire column to them last time.

However, another round-date is worth mentioning here, namely a quarter of a century of ferry services linking the German Port of Kiel with Russia.

It all started in July 1991 when Anna Karenina of Baltic Line berthed in Kiel af er leaving St. Petersburg.

Over the years, ferries also connected Kiel with Kaliningrad and Vyborg.

Today, Finnlines' ro-ros sail from Kiel's Norwegenkai to the Commercial Sea Port of Ust-Luga's YUG-2, from where goods are further shipped to Moscow, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, and China.

Wishing Kiel and their Russian friends another successful 25 years of ferry-crosscutting the Baltic!
