We travelled north on the Sheksna River as part of our waterways journey from Moscow to St Petersburg. The Sheksna is part of the Volga-Baltic Canal system (see next page). Its main shore-based attraction is Goritzy where cruise ships stop to visit the Kirilov Monastery. The southernmost end of the river has been flooded to become the Rybinsk Reservoir.
