Waterbus "Saint Michael"
The mission of FUTURA Foundation is to develop territories and help the revival of local traditional industries - regardless of political boundaries. The Foundation considers eco and ethno- tourism as one of the ways of such development, and focuses on the waterways as historical trade routes that always connected the centers of ethnic crafts worldwide.
Researching Dniestr river within Ukraine territory can be a starting point. The launch of Futura Ethno Lodge recreational complex in Tsipovo village (Moldova) and the construcion of the first waterbus (St. Michael) are the key steps to make.
Waterbus is a fast and green way of transportation, unfairly forgotten in our time.
"Saint Michael" is travel catamaran (premium class) set up for 20 passengers.
Launching the first "run" of the Dniester is scheduled for May 2018.
