Icebreaker 'Krasin' is a museum that could be visited during the Festival of Modern art held in a traditional museum. It enables visitors to come through the live history and feel the real romance of Polar research works.
The icebreaker symbolizes a whole epoch in the history of Russia. The place is very popular both among the guests of Saint-Petersburg and its native citizens.
In the beginning of the 20th century Russia was a leading country that developed the Polar Ocean with the help of linear ice-breakers. Russian ships 'Ermak' and 'Svyatogor' were the strongest ice-breakers in the world. Ship 'Svyatogor' that was renamed into 'Krasin' later is the second Polar ice-breaker in Russia with the most perfect construction.
Existence of the ship is closely related to the history of Russia.
