Cruiser Aurora, St. Petersburg

4.1
All aboard Cruiser Aurora, a training ship that played a central role in the beginning of the Great October Socialist Revolution. The ship first launched in 1900 and joined the Russian Navy in 1903. The ship-turned-museum played an active part in the Russo-Japanese war, World War I, and World War II, but it is remembered best for stymieing international intervention during the Soviet uprising of 1917. Climb on board to see what life was like for the sailors working on the ship. The exhibit provides additional information on the battles that the cruiser took part in, its history, and the people who sailed the ship.

  • The first time was on Aurora in the age of 13. Then he seemed decrepit to me and was not very impressed. Now Aurora is in super condition, it is relatively not long restored and it should be visited! For 30 minutes you can get around the whole ship, but the local taxi driver said that before allowed to the bottom of the ship, now not:( Entry adult 400, children's 200. I advise everyone to visit the fresh Aurora!

  • Saint Petersburg is a City full of very interesting things to see. One of the must see attractions is the Aurora battle cruiser which played an important role in the first world war and the October Revolution in 1917. The ship is now a museum. Most of the deck is accessible for visitors and in the below deck are the main museum exhibits. Definitely worth a visit!

One of the first incidents of the October Revolution 1917 in Russia took place on the cruiser Aurora, which reportedly fired the first shot, signalling the beginning of the attack on the Winter Palace
