Moskow Canal / Volga-Moskow-Canal / Moskwa River | Russia

River Tversa
flows at the town of Tver into the still rather young River Volga. Today, it's navigable with middle sized boats up to 12 m to just below the bridge at the old, neo-classical town of Torzhok. At the town of Vydropuzhsk, it becomes more or less a creek which has at Vyshniy Volochek a canal link to the small River Tsna and the reservoir of Vishnevolotskoye.

The waterway used to be of some importance to the area. There was a link from the reservoir of Vishnevolotskoye over the small river Mstu, connected by a short canal with River Wolchow at Novgorod, into Ilmensee and on River Wolchow one had access to Lake Lagoda.
