Do you feel like seeing the inside of a former submarine vessel which is now being used as a museum?
B-396 submarine vessel was put into operation in 1981 and used till 1998. Since 2006 the vessel had become a museum exhibit and was open for visitors.
A watch bell or ‘rynda’ in Russian. The word is originated from English. During the reign of Peter I much attention was given to development of navigation. The experience of navigation was borrowed from the Englishmen. Many words were translated from English into Russian much later including the phrase ‘ring the bell’ that was interpreted in Russian as ‘v ryndu bei’. That’s how the bell was called a rhynda.
It is necessary to mention that the submarine has undergone several changes. In particular, openings were made giving people an opportunity to walk inside.
The submarine has 6 torpedoes in the torpedo room.
A diver’s suit used to save crew members.
