        I would gladly like to take the one way Kuzhir to Irkutsk on 10th of August 2019. Can I reserve or buy the ticket in advance or are there always some seats available on arrival?
        Thank you very much!

        Kind regards

          You can buy ticket in advance online, but it is possible to do in Russian language only. I’m not sure there will be empty places on the ferry…

          If you have more questions I will be happy to help you

    Is there a ferry only for one way passenger transportation, from Irkutsk (Gagarin Avenue) to Khuzhir? Would one then travel with the mentioned ferry, but just go one way? Would that then be half the price (9900 rubles)? Thank you in advance!

      You absolutely right – the price will be half
