"Aurora" Cruiser

Back

“Aurora” Cruiser, the legend of the Russian fleet, is one of the most popular attractions in Saint Petersburg. She played an important role in some key events of the national history. Commissioned in 1903, the ship received its first baptism of fire in the battle of Tsushima during the Russo-Japanese War where she narrowly escaped death. “Aurora” took an active part in the battles of WWI and, most importantly, became a symbol of the 1917 Socialist Revolution. On October 25, she fired a blank shot signaling to the rebellious population to storm the Winter palace and overthrow the Provisional government. “Aurora” is now a memorial ship, moored permanently on the bank of the Neva river.
