Cruiser Aurora

St. Petersburg, Russia
4.3 / 55
The warship of 1900, which took part in the battle of Tsushima in the waters of the Pacific Ocean. After returning to the Baltic Sea was used as a training. In October 1917, a cannon shot fired from a cruiser signaled the assault on the Winter Palace and the start of the Bolshevik coup (October Revolution of 1917). Until 1940, the ship was used for its intended purpose, and since 1948 it left for the “eternal parking lot”, a museum exposition was placed inside.

If you've known about the history between Russia and Thailand more than 100 years ago, So you'd understand why I've to unavoidably visit this battleship. Because of a good Russian Relationship which made Thailand's survival from .. Read more »

Not worth the visit and the expensive ticket. Most of the cruiser is closed and this is not a temporary thing. Better visit HMS Belfast in London.

We enjoyed looking around the boat,was worth a visit. You can't take a bag on it but there are lockers. If you can buy the tickets online to avoid the queue.

Got tickets for 400 rur. Half of the ship areas are closed for painting. Another half have no access. You will not see engine room, boilers, holds, conning tower, etc. Everything is closed. Very poor exposition. Do not recommend.

You should do it once to see if with your own eyes, but I would not repeat the experience. Half of the upper deck was closed due to some preparations. The rest mostly contained monitors with movies.

The Aurora Cruiser is an enjoyable visit and has so much historical significance. The museum, the ship, is not large so a visit only takes 30-40 minutes, but it costs the same or close to the Hermitage which is no comparison. If coming for a short ti.. Read more »

As a museum ship, the cruiser Aurora became one of the many tourist attractions of Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg), and continued to be a symbol of the October Socialist Revolution and a prominent attribute of Russian history. In addition to the mus.. Read more »

Historical place, but a bit boring exhibition. You need to take a guide to understand everything.

If you love history, if you love old military ships - this is what you need. Magnificent Aurora was built in the beginning of 19 century.

Kind of a must-see in St Petersburg, but that doesn't mean it's terribly exciting. You walk on the deck and pose for a few photos, and then go downstairs into the museum bit. You won't see much/any of what the interior used to look li.. Read more »

Unique ship with extraordinary historical relevance, very well restored. Would have been nice to have few more things in English and to open up and allow to walk around more regular areas inside and on the deck rather than just rooms set up for exhi.. Read more »

Being a bit generous with a 4⭐️ rating as there is not much to read or see and what there is is only in Russian. Still a cool ship and if you’re into these things then I recommend. Loads to do in STP but if you’re passing then go. Not ch.. Read more »

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 o.. Read more »

This ship is worth to visit. Afterall it is a symbol of the revolution. It can happen, as today, that there are long queues to buy tickets. Foreigners pay more than Russians, 700 rubles instead of 400. You can't fool them as they chceck your doc.. Read more »
