Cruiser Aurora, St. Petersburg

(4/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • The Cruiser out everything beautiful of its long renovation: it looks new! You can visit it every day except Tuesday; the bridge, its boats, its guns, its shells... And inside documents, tables, navigation instruments, a bunk, uniforms, weapons etc. etc... Exciting for sailors but also open and interesting exhibition for all, including children.

  • Leave the right to talk about this legendary ship historians and just look at it from the side, and see his strength and monumentality grace and beauty. Which have shot up in the sky, waving masts and pipes on Nevsky breeze andreevsky flag and Jack. Beautifully done refurbishment. Hundreds and thousands of Russians and visitors from other countries will gladly visit this eternally young Cruiser, which bears the name of the Roman goddess of dawn Aurora.
