  • Organization sucks, nothing showed plainly. Wasted time, not small money lead like a herd.

  • The icebreaker "Krasin"-Arctic icebreaker of the Soviet and Russian navies. Is a branch Museum of the world ocean in Kaliningrad. This is the second icebreaker, who visited. And to be honest impressions he was not fired. Many offices are closed and are not available for visitors (the most interesting of course is not available). You can go to a particular deck, to approach the ship Bell, see running and navigation felling cabins-company and visit the small exhibition in one of the premises of the icebreaker. However it's all experience. Cost is not small, and watch in fact nothing! Can of course composed of participants for the tour group: you can see more. I advise you to visit the Museum in good weather, or to dress warmly, because the queue have to stand on the street.

  • If you have an interest for either ships, sea expeditions, polar missions, WWII or Soviet history, then you'll find something for you on the Krasin! The ship is permanently moored on the northern side...  more »

  • Potentially interesting museum, but entrance is on guided tour only, only in Russian. Tour starts with a rather long and boring video.
  • One of the oldest icebreakers in the World!
  • Quite an interesting excursion. Almost not been on ships, so it was a novelty. Sorry, that was not hit in the engine room-came not at that hour. Awareness of age is simply astounding.

  • Excursion an interesting, but not very much. Came in a free day visits, declared at the site. It turned out that for free just for concessional categories of citizens, the others pay. Be careful! Read the site completely! Dorogovatye tickets, but once one has to go.

  • Are few Italians visiting St Petersburg, come at the end of the wharf of Lieutenant Schmith, easily reached from Piazza Truda, after crossing the bridge Blagoveshenskji. There is in fact much publicity on the Krasin despite being a legendary icebreaker for the Russians but that has risen to the headlines around the world for saving some of the crew of Umberto Nobile airship Italy, following the accident, impacted on the Arctic in July 1928. A unique opportunity to know then as it made this historic icebreaker-you will find it more comfortable than some of the ferries Tirrenia, but thanks to a young student hired as a guide and translator with English, you can appreciate the different areas of the ship and retrace the steps of the legendary Italian adventure in the ice of the pole.
