The Russian tall-ship Kruzenshtern is in the Spanish port of Vigo at the end of a two-week voyage from the Canaries…

The call will last 4 days and include on-board visits and a packed bilateral cultural program…

The Kruzenshtern or Krusenstern (Russian: ???? ???????????) is a four masted barque and tall ship that was built in 1926 at Geestemünde in Bremerhaven, Germany as the Padua (named after the Italian city). She was surrendered to the USSR in 1946 as war reparation and renamed after the early 19th century Baltic German explorer in Russian service, Adam Johann Krusenstern (1770–1846). She is now a Russian Navy sail training ship. (Wikipedia)

This ship is incredible and I try to follow it all over the world…

Windows to Russia!
