Took the first tour in the morning. The icebreaker has a fascinating history and it's a joy to tour its interior. We took a tour in Russian which was, due to many families with children, more oriented towards younger than mature audience, but still managed to get lots of useful information.

We visited an extreme car tour of Murmansk. I thought it would be a lot of interesting sights of the harbor, with a European man. The car was driving in the harbor road and I saw the ice-breaking ship, found the table which was written, visit   only after login. But great fortune There was a lady who asked, what... More

I loved our tour on the Lenin icebreaker as it was very educational and I learned about how icebreakers worked. Having worked on cruiseships this woke up some memories of the life onboard a sea vessel.

Brief advice: go there six months later. Be sure you are into history of technology and engineering before you visit. You will learn about how a nuclear icebreaker works, see where it started fifty years ago, there are some games for kids you get to play. See how did sailors live, eat. At the december of 2013 the icebreaker is... More

We were able to visit the ship on the last day before it went to dry dock. The tour was a bit rushed because we were a little late, but it was still worth the visit. The tour guide had to be translated for us, but our guide did that very well. The history is quite interesting. Once the ship... More
