Renovated Military Cruiser Aurora will accept first visitors 03rd of August01.08.2016
Legendary Cruiser Aurora that have come back to St. Petersburg 16th of July after long restoration will be opened for public on Wednesday 03rd of August 2016. Military ship Aurora has been turned into a museum and is docked just a few hundred yards upstream from the Cabin of Peter the Great, opposite Hotel Saint Petersburg.
The cruiser, built in St. Petersburg between 1897 and 1900, took an active part in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05 and participated in the Tsusima battle, in which most of Russia's Pacific fleet was destroyed. After the war the ship was used for personnel training and during the October revolution of 1917 gave the signal (by firing a blank shot) to storm of the Winter Palace, which was being used as a residence by the democratic, but largely ineffective Provisional Government. During World War II and the 900-day Siege of Leningrad the guns of the ship were taken down and used on the front line of the city's defenses. After the war the ship was carefully restored and used as a free museum and training ship for cadets from the nearby Nakhimov Navy School.
In 1956 the cruiser Aurora was made a museum (a branch of the Central Naval Museum). For 45 years the museum has been visited by more than 28 million people from 160 countries.
