    Rarely offered by agencies, this visit is worthwhile because we don't often have the opportunity to visit a Russian submarine background thoroughly! There is also a boat that is supposed to be a cruiser transforms for oceanographic research, but that more resembles a spy ship with its huge saucers antennas. Unfortunately, it cannot be visited! Also, for lovers of strong sensations, there is a simulator that gives the impression of being in a nutshell on a stormy sea.

    If you go to a Museum, do not enter the Café: arrogant obdiralovka with inedible food! But the prices are quite high. For such money you can eat in a good Café decent business lunch.

    The main attraction of the Museum of the city and the region as a whole. To be fully familiar with exposure (including ships) will take several days, I hope to return here a year later.
