CRUISER AURORA

 
  Cruiser Aurora  
 

View from St Petersburg hotel to cruiser Aurora across the Bolshaya Nevka. Behind it is the Nakhimov Naval Academy. The bronze model frigate is the symbol of St Petersburg. The cruiser was commissioned in 1900. A blank fired from a deck gun signaled the attack on the Winter Palace. The cruiser is now open as a museum.
