Museum ship 'Aurora' at Leningrad

Former Imperial Russian & Soviet Navies' cruiser "Aurora" (6,731 deadweight tons, built by the Admiralty Shipyard, St Petersburg) at Leningrad (now St Petersburg again) in May 1969. She was commissioned in July 1903, took part in the Battle of Tsushima against Japan in 1905 & served in the Baltic in World War 1. A mutiny on board on 25 October 1917 is said to have sparked the October Revolution. In 1941 she was sunk by the Germans & after being refloated & restored was put into permanent moorings at Lengingrad in 1947 & has been open as a museum ship there since 1957. See also photo 8326.
