A real feel for life on a submarine and the basic conditions the sailors endured. Worth a visit. Tour guides only speak Russian.

It is original experience and you can learn a lot even if you are history & militaria buff (just as I am). I was a bit disappointed that "the route" was so short (both in time and in distance), as there are so many interesting...More

Very interesting place to see, it's all well maintained. If there is a problem with the entrance, you should call the museum and someone will come to meet you. Highly recommend!

We are interested in Russian history and were excited to see the submarine , warts and all. We waited in the sunshine for our turn , only 10 at a time. We practised our limited Russian with our fellow tourists. Well worth the wait. Our...More
