The route was officially launched on August 10, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

Kyiv's "river tram" resumed its service after a six-year break, according to the TV news service TSN.

It will offer three voyages a day in the form of a city tour, which will be available on the weekend only and will be themed to Kyiv's history.

"The service has been resumed in a trial mode. If there are people, more routes will open," captain of the vessel Viktor Hrekh said.

A two-way ticket for a 90-minute voyage costs UAH 150, or about US$6.
