According to its technical capabilities, the Sea Station complex is able to accommodate up to 1 million passengers arriving by sea. But due to the peculiarities of the sea canal built at the end of the 19th century leading to the port, ships over 200 meters long cannot approach the berths of the Marine Station. Cruise and ferry ships are accepted at the berths of the new Sea Passenger Port.
