"AURORA" CRUISER

The Russian Navy’s "Ship #1" is the symbol of the Great Socialist Revolution of October 1917, took part in three wars. The Aurora participated in the Russo-Japanese war in 1904-1905 while operating in the Pacific. The ship fought against Germany twice, during World War I and II. Aurora marked the beginning of the Bolshevik revolution on October 24 of 1917 with a blank shot from its forecastle gun, which was a signal to launch an assault on the Winter Palace, where an interim government was residing at the time. During the Siege of Leningrad, the Aurora’s turret guns were dismantled so that they could be used on the frontline. The ship itself was heavily damaged in battle and became waterlogged. Yet it was fully repaired and rebuilt immediately after the war to become an historical naval museum that has been berthed on St. Petersburg’s Petrogradskaya embankment over the past 70 years.
