Especially for Greeks this is a living piece of history. Nearly a century old, yet still floating. A marvel that is worth visiting :)

This ship is awesomely restored and preserved. Nothing screams military more than some big guns. If you are staying on the coast, it’s worth the tour.

3 euro was good value for a visit to this very interesting look at life on a battleship. Easy to find on Flisvos Marina and well worth an hour of your time if you're in the area.
