Today you have a unique chance to have an excursion inside a nuclear icebreaker "Lenin".
A modern Titanic.
1ST….. cool boat though
beat to it
Very impressive! I love the estetics. One could just muster on the ship and trip to the days of yore…
Why would a man on crutches even want to go down those steps?
The interiors remind me of Mexican buildings built in the 60’s too. I like that kind of minimalistic aesthetics
That is an impressive ship. Kinda funny though. They have a working, and apparently good, nuclear power power system on this ship. Yet they seem to have missed it on their submarines. They didn’t get those right until later. Makes me think they were done separately.
Very nice. rather posh interior. love it.
Check your facts, the first nuclear powered surface ship was USS Long Beach CGN-9 set sail in July of ’59…full six months before ol’ Vlad here.
Amazing pics, I love the interior! It reminds me of the good old times…
Lenin is a Soviet icebreaker launched in 1957, and is both the world’s first nuclear powered surface ship and the first nuclear powered civilian vessel. Lenin was put into operation in 1959 and officially decommissioned in 1989. :)))))))
Quite the feat!
“Study as Lenin studied!” (Pic 66)
Should one die of syphilis just as Lenin did as well?
Good grief….. I think he’s talking about the statue, it’s called “study as Lenin Studied” (um, the “Pic 66″ is a clue, it refers to a photo).
Think of the people who were getting radiated by obsolete technology for 30 years .
The technology is pretty good, and it’s, enough to be not radiated.
I notice that always write negative posts here.
You have problems, nobody loves you? xD
Hi guys – I work in the British Pathe film archive.
I see that a Polish website discussing this topic is watching one of our videos ‘ICEBREAKER’ -http://www.britishpathe.com/record.php?id=60116 A video of the Atomic Ice Breaker in Leningrad.
It’s great footage of this ship when it was launched.
I’ll check it out, thanks.
Yep, apparently Russians invented and HDTV too, which is found in the captinan saloon! An impressive boat though!!!
Awesome,great to see her preserved so well.
