  • While I am in the next mini-vacation at home, decided to test with a sudden visit Vasku, to climb aboard the legendary icebreaker «Krasin», which stands on the red currant waterfront Lieutenant Schmidt. During its 100 year history, this icebreaker (zagibaem fingers): postponed the rebranding (originally bore the name Svyatogor), was hijacked to Britain, and was later bought by the Soviet leadership (not without the assistance of the Special Representative and head of the trade mission in Britain L.b. Krasin) participated in rescue the Chelyuskintsy and expedition Nobilja during the great patriotic war was part of convoy PQ-15, survived the full technical modernization in the mid-20th century, almost gone for scrap in "lehie 90-e" in the States. From 1999 onwards is a branch (suddenly!), World Ocean Museum Kaliningrad. Externally, the icebreaker is huge (consisting of 7 decks) and leaves an unforgettable and enjoyable experience. Inside, you can peek into the cabins of the sailors, cabins company, Captain's cabin pilothouse navigation, as well as to stand at the helm on the captain's bridge. Hour excursion (there can be accessed only with excursion) passes unnoticed. For me remains a mystery why this museum is less known to the general public, unlike its fellow Cruiser "Aurora". Icebreaker Krasin in no way inferior in number and as historical artifacts Aurora. As a result-highly recommend to visit, especially if you are interested in a marine theme. Sure, you will like it as well as I

  • See icebreaker can only be composed of participants for the tour group, which is generated once an hour. There are an additional service inspection "Amber cabins" surcharge, but that is, I did not seek. Arrived at the icebreaker in 13:50, bought a ticket and realized that you can see it only in the group, which is a bit upset. Yet it turned out that the Group should be no more than 15 people, and the US near the cash register tolpilos for more than two dozen. But the Guide appeared and took us to the exposition, not paying attention to the number of participants in the group. Excursion lasts about an hour, and believe me, I've never regretted that went exactly with the group, since most view and all learn about the legendary symbol of the Arctic, I would have failed. Highly recommend. As an added bonus: on the opposite bank are Admiralty shipyard and dry dock, which stood a submarine, as well as two pledged nuclear icebreaker, one "Siberia", and the second name I don't see. By the way, card payments are accepted.

  • This ledokolu turns 100 years old, this is a very significant date))) Visited this tour with a teenage son, very interesting to pass on an icebreaker and see everything with your own eyes, tour times per hour. There is a small gift shop where you can buy something. Learned a lot of new ... did you know that the icebreaker tunic not ice, as many think, and creeps on it Stern and 2.5 m thick ice cracked under the weight of an icebreaker weighing 80 tons. And another interesting fact-depth, which can pass the vessel equal to 2.1 m, so the Mariners are willing to 7 feet under keel (foot is 30 cm). Learned something new? Come on a tour and get a lot of interesting information! Especially recommend that fathers with sons. The rise of the icebreaker on very steep stairs, so there are strict limits for girls in heels size (learn on the site) will not be able to visit the icebreaker disabled people, given the difficulty of hitting on the vessel (

  • Extremely well preserved century old ship with an interesting operational history. Tours are guided. Minimal information in English.
  • Good condition old naval ship, with museum inner but still operable. Ship with interesting and long history.
  • No English guide. Otherwise interesting.
  • Rather interested but excursion too short
  • I am sure it worths to visit it
