Russian Cruiser Aurora

The cruiser "Aurora", which is clearly visible on our live stream webcam, became world famous after firing a single volley that signaled a start of the October Revolution of 1917 in Russia. The ship was an active participant in the defense of Leningrad (present St. Petersburg) during the Great Patriotic War (World War II).

At the end of the war in 1945, the outstanding ship that you see in our webcam online began to serve as a training ship and a museum, having risen to its rightful place on the Neva River in St. Petersburg. "Aurora" became an important symbol of the Russian navy, a striking example of cultural and historical heritage and a popular tourist destination.
