Submarine l'Espadon, Saint-Nazaire
(4.2/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
A prime example of French naval innovation, Submarine l'Espadon started as a target for torpedo practice, but ended up impressing the naval community by successfully making a journey under ice in the Norwegian Sea at far as 70 degrees north. Docked as a museum ship since 1987, she can be seen in all her glory resting at port. Peruse the complexity of the control room and admire the ingenious design that allowed this vessel to conquer the cold and ice under the sea’s immense pressure.

  • I don't advice centres or schools to come in too many. We have no time to understand and observe everything. Enough space! Otherwise it is interesting throughout and the staff is very friendly!
