“Krassin” icebreaker is the oldest arctic vessel in Russia with a very rich history and distinguished career. Originally it was built for the Imperial Navy, played a significant role in exploring the Northern Sea Route and participated in rescue operations. During WWII, under heavy Nazi bombardment the ship heroically led Arctic convoys to the Soviet Union, carrying strategic supplies. It has been restored to full operating condition and is now a floating museum on the Neva river. Come aboard, walk on the deck, visit the captain cabin and crew bunks, see one of the largest steam engines in the world and feel the romantic adventure of polar exploration.

The museum will provide you with a flyer containing a lot of interesting facts about the exposition. Languages: English, Chinese.
