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. Using our world travel planner, St. Petersburg attractions like Cruiser Aurora can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Visited there after the restoration. The atmosphere is somehow disrupted. On the decks and down just get into an ordinary Museum. Expect more.
