Cruiser Aurora, St. Petersburg
(4/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
All aboard Cruiser Aurora, a training ship that played a central role in the beginning of the Great October Socialist Revolution. The ship first launched in 1900 and joined the Russian Navy in 1903. The ship-turned-museum played an active part in the Russo-Japanese war, World War I, and World War II, but it is remembered best for stymieing international intervention during the Soviet uprising of 1917. Climb on board to see what life was like for the sailors working on the ship. The exhibit provides additional information on the battles that the cruiser took part in, its history, and the people who sailed the ship. Using our world travel planner, St. Petersburg attractions like Cruiser Aurora can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • I will not hide, with some trepidation, went on board the Aurora after her return from the docks. The excitement proved to be in vain-heroic Cruiser endured with dignity and this test. In the exposition of almost all remaining in their places, which is very nice. Yes, new technologies-nominated work, projectors and screens in steerage hologram sailor excitedly consume lunch-animated, in the spirit of the times. But the important thing is not the thing of a sense of authenticity. Anticipating the question about the authenticity of the Guide replied: "If your grandmother stuck a new jaw, it ceased to be your grandmother?". Promise to soon open for inspection engine, then Grandma could be to explore fully. In the meantime, health to her!

  • Incredible Museum-monument. Learned a lot of new after visiting an upgraded Aurora. Of course, confused quite a long queue at the entrance. But this is the only minus
