First saw this from our hotel window and had to go and have a closer look. Wonderful piece of wartime history to look at but didn't go inside. Also gets lit up at night.

Purportedly, the Russian Revolution of 1917 started with a blank shot fired from the battleship aurora, which was meant to be a signal to the Bolsheviks to storm the winter palace. A photo stop for history buffs.
