Worth visiting for its history. After the museum display which is in the cruiser (for which an entrance fee is payable) we were given the opportunity to visit the engine room - for an extra 100 rubles. This was worth while. We arrived for the last tour which was in Russian so we were allowed to wander through the museum display which has English explanations. On the engine room tour the guide gave us a potted English version of what she had said

Did not bother trying to get into this submarine. I think there's a tour for that but I don't like any war stuff but my friends drove through it (its right on the Neva river) and its just grand to look at it ...you'll get goosbumps knowing all what developed after it blew that canyon back in 1917.

This Cruiser is a 1900 Russian preserved as a museum ship. She battled the Japanese Navy in the Russo-Japanese war. She continued to serve in all wars until 1957. A must see for "history buffs"!

Ship's not that big in todays standards but worth a visit. Lot's of history on that ship - fighting in the far east, 1917 revolution. Worth a visit, seen it twice already.

Nothing to see (if you are not a devoted communist).... Just piece of the metal on the water which too look on - coast to you. Too long from all attractive places in the city. Look on the picture on Internet and choose another places!
