Līgatne ferry, Gauja river, Latvia
After WWII when bridges were destroyed a ferry was put in it's place. And it's been there ever since. It is operated with man power and now a historical landmark. There is only one other ferry crossing in the country and that ferry has an engine.

It's fairly cheap. I used to drive from England to Athens all the time in a van, and get a ferry from Ancona, Italy to Patras, Greece. Crossing is 21 hours, and Superfast Ferries has some pretty good deals of around 200€ return with cabin.

These routes are with small tourist boats and not ferries. Also they are technically illegal but the turkish side tries to bypass the law, using for example a different boat in the return voyage. Many spots in Asia minor coast draw tourist by advertising visits to nearby greek islands, and such trips happen regardless.

Can you take your car on the ferry from Cesme to Chios ?

What about the ferries from Greece or Turkey to Egypt ?


Does this ferry operate regulary transporting passengers and their cars from Venice to Alexandria ? Sure seems like an interesting vacation bringing your car to Egypt.

Ferry between Gills' Bay on the British Mainland and St. Margaret's Hope on Orkney island in Northern Scotland:

1. Vehicle terminal in Gills' Bay




2. Boarding process: securing a lorry




3. Passenger's area. Many went up to the outer deck for gazing.




4. No waste of space with these lorries! The passenger cars are right and left of the lorry area (barely visible in this photo).




5. Ready for departure!




6. Passing the uninhabited island of Stroma off the Northern coast of Scotland




7. The vessel itself from a distance, seen when arriving in St Margaret's Hope for the journey back to the mainland.
