Paddlewheel Steamboats in Russia

Sidewheel steamer "N.V. Gogol," built in 1911 and one of the last surviving steamers of her type.

Russian and American steamboats have been working together for decades, since before the end of the cold war (click the icon above for more information). There is a long tradition of paddlewheelers in Russia. thanks Alexander Karpov for sending these photos.
