Nakhimov Naval School and Cruiser Aurora St Petersburgh

By IainHamer
Nakhimov Naval School and the Cruiser Aurora is now a museum ship with a history of service in the Russo-Japanese War, revolution of 1917 & WWII.
Taken during a very damp early morning river cruise on the River Neva looking down the Bolshya Nevka River.

St. Petersburg is a Russian port city on the Baltic Sea. It was the imperial capital for 2 centuries, having been founded in 1703 by Peter the Great, subject of the city's iconic “Bronze Horseman” statue. It remains Russia's cultural center, with venues such as the Mariinsky Theatre hosting opera and ballet, and the State Russian Museum showcasing Russian art, from Orthodox icon paintings to Kandinsky works.

Good memories. A dear friend, now dead, lived just round the corner on Finlandskiy Prospect.
