We were lucky to have Yaroslavl to show us round & explain all about the vessel. It was surprising to see how plush some of the offices were & to see photos of other famous people who had been on board over the years. This...More

Interesting tour of an old icebreaker bearing the name of Lenin; it is a stately ship. These ships were behemoths to crush the ice, and I do mean large.

It's an ice breaker. Period. It looks quite interesting from the outside, and it might actually be interesting from the inside. However, tours are few and they all seemed to be in Russian.

We really appreciated our chance to look over the de-commissioned Ice Breaker. The ship is full of 1950s style furniture and instruments which gives it a real atmosphere. our guide showed us round intelligently. If you are in Murmansk, I'd rate it as a 'must-see'.

If you are interested in history this is the right place for you. The tickets are not expensive at all. I paid 100 rublos for a ticket + tour in Russian. If you are interested, there might be a tour in English. The whole icebreaker...More

Both tour guides at the Lenin spoke excellent English, perhaps you could ask at your hotel to call about the English tours. We stayed at the Azimut Murmansk and the young woman at reception called for us but, unfortunately... More
