Ships and Harbours
Alexander Pushkin moored in Gothenburg
Built in East Germany in 1965, this Soviet ocean liner was purchased by Orient Lines in 1991. She was stripped down to the bare steel, and aside from the hull and engines nothing from the old Soviet era was saved. Under the skillful guidance of Danish naval architects Knud E. Hansen A/S and Greek interior designers AMK Interiors, she became the Marco Polo and transformed from a rusting Soviet-era relic into a practically new ship.
