The sub was totally on land near the bay; I walked through the sub and found interesting information about its years of service. Displays show how crew lived and worked while under water. Interesting relic from the Cold War Era. It is obvious that the Russian sailors did not have an easy or soft life at sea.

The museum is ok to visit if you really like old Russian submarines. Entry fee: It only costs 100rub to enter and you have to pay to use camera (50rub) and video camera. Museum: It will take maybe 1hr max to visit. You walk through most of the submarine, the first part is just a museum with pictures in it... More

Whole live sub from the 2nd WW on the coast next to the WW 2 memorial, a museum ship, a church and an Imperial Arch. Can't remember the price but don't think it was expensive. Inside the submarine you can see 3 (mostly) original rooms: the control room with a non operational periscope and whole lot of switches and levers,... More

Believe it or not, I've actually toured 3 other submarines. In this one, you actually tour half the boat (basically 3 rooms), as the other half is a museum that's mostly photos. You get to see the torpedos and the engines, but the periscope doesn't work to look through. You do get a nice photo of the sub from outside,... More

This is a fantastic museum, a great insight into the people who served in the submarine and the actual insides of the submarine. The first half of this submarine are displays and photos but walk further towards the 2nd half and you will see the insides of a real Soviet submarine. Some people say the periscope works, but I wasn't... More

The museum itself is rather small but you can get impression on how it looked like to stay in WW2 submarine. It is possible to watch pictures and items of that time. It would be pretty interesting for the history lovers and maybe children. You can cross the whole submarine for 10 minutes, nothing more to check inside. It is... More

It is real submarine that participated in the Great Patriotic War (World War II). Visitors may come inside and feel a spirit of 40th of XX centuary.
