  • The Krasin is a historic ice-breaker anchored 20 minutes of bus des of the Winter Palace. Visits are only guided and run every hour on the dot. These are only in Russian, although the guide towards efforts to translate any phrase to the English. The price is a little expensive, 400 roubles, taking into account that only see a tiny part of the Bacchus, and the visit does not last more than 45 minutes. If you want to take pictures inside you must pay a supplement of 100 rubles, which from my point of view is not worthwhile. Since des of the outside the view is much more impressive that the cabins and salad interiors.

  • One of the oldest icebreakers in the World!
  • 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.

  • If there is interest to such monuments, the icebreaker is required to visit. Tour interesting, although a bit show premises (relative to the entire vehicle), the captain's bridge, you can stand at the wheel and try "steering". Also allowed to try his hand as a radio operator and nastučat′ anything Morse code. It is better to wear shoes without heels, difficult to climb the ladder. Tickets cost 300 rubles. for an adult citizen of the Russian Federation.

  • Just super! Really liked the tour, tour guide led interesting. Icebreaker itself too large, very cozy inside. Liked the captain's cabin and deckhouse) fixed, for 11 people. Most importantly: TICKETS are SOLD on the boat, that is when you will give the signal to Ascend, you go right to the last door. However, you all again;) will tell So you can not look convulsively, where tickets to buy, feel free to stand in a queue to a stairwell and wait. Come will not regret! Very good;)

  • Tour enjoyed uniquely! We have shown: cabin of the captain, conference room (beautiful place), felling (many navigation devices). At the end there is the possibility to go on deck, which offers an excellent view of the Neva River. Cons: Group fixed, you don't get caught; Even with a fixed number of people in some of the halls of the vessel closely (problematic to withdraw a good shot).
