Aurora (Russian: Авро́ра, tr. Avrora, IPA: [ɐˈvrorə]) is a 1900 Russian protected cruiser, currently preserved as a museum ship in Saint Petersburg. Aurora was one of three Pallada-class cruisers, built in Saint Petersburg for service in the Pacific. All three ships of this class served during the Russo-Japanese War. Aurora survived the Battle of Tsushima and was interned under US protection in the Philippines, and eventually returned to the Baltic Fleet.

If you are interested in History or maritime. Go there. On other hand after renovation it does not looks like cruiser any more. More like museum on river.
Great piece of Russian history. Inspired me to read a book about events in 1917.
Russian war ship full of history. It took part of the Russian-Japanese war, in the WW1 and the revolution of October, later in the WW2 and as a training war ship, and even provided humanitarian assistance in the Italian earthquake. Outstanding museum.
Great museum. Not much in English when it comes to the displays however. Still worth a visit to see this historic fighting vessel.
Where tourism meets history. The gun which started the October revolution on a splendidly kept old cruiser. P.S. Although almost all the indicationa are in Russian if you look well there is a minimum of information in English, which is sufficient to guide the visitor. Not very crowded, but of course usually in summer you will not be the only tourist on board.
