  • In the glorious city of Murmansk was first and not visit the icebreaker just couldn't! But when January 2 we come to his parking lot, then struck much the same queue. Some misinformation in the ranks, my stubbornness and lucky for us! Wonderful excursion, although its not even call the tour, rather the stories the crew member with love, great respect and pride for the icebreaker. Time flew by unnoticed, given that the tour lasted for longer than a specified amount of time.

I would like to say a big thank you for the opportunity to touch history and relics of our country!

Recommend. 150 rubles will have worked on all of 100%.
