Lenin Nuclear Icebreaker, Murmansk

(4.8/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
The world's first surface ship utilizing nuclear power, Lenin Nuclear Icebreaker today serves as a museum to preserve the history of the pioneering craft. First launched in 1957, the vessel helped to clear shipping routes in Russia's northern reaches. Climb aboard the powerful ship, home to more than 1,000 rooms, cabins, and compartments, and explore the facilities that once housed the crew. See how they lived, worked, and operated aboard the icebreaker during the years of the Soviet Union. Learn a bit more about the vessel's history and operation, and Arctic exploration in general, by joining a guided tour from the museum staff. You'll even get a glimpse of the nuclear reactor itself. Tours are available in English, but you should be sure to call ahead to arrange one.
