The ship that started a revolution. They say that during the WWII siege of Leningrad, it was sunk to the river bed for protection against shells and bombs and then refloated.

The visit has a great historical value. This cruiser began its Russian revolution. All developments came after the opening of fire by the ship.

Neva river forever anchored to famous cruiser "Aurora". The cruiser gun on 25 October 1917 (Old Style) attack heralded the beginning of the Winter Palace. The visitors have the opportunity to climb on board.

Unremarkable boat. The ship stood out from other vessels except the fact that during the coup, fired from cannon ....

The cruiser Arora I believe is gone for maintenance and will be back only June 2016. So don't waste your time and energy going looking for it. With temperatures rather high it gets hot and humid and gets you all tired. So skip this.

Don't bother going...the ship is being refurnished although you won't find this information on the web (or on trip advisor) or even at the site but we went so I can promise you it's gone! we asked at tourist information and they have no idea...More

This is the ship that fired the first shot in the Russian Revolution . It is great that this historical ship is still around

I hope people ask themselves, what does it symbolize. I find it a monument to the end of the Russian monarchy, Russian intelligentsia and beginning of real terror to people for many years...

An interesting look at an historical warship that was instrumental in the fall of the Tsarist regime. It's difficult to know whose story is the "real" story, but the ship itself is fascinating.
