Russia’s Kruzenshtern Barque is Leaving for Her Autumn Voyage…

As I said the other day I just love these huge sailing ships of Russia’s. We have a Tall Ship right now in Honolulu:

A Russian Tall Ship (Pallada) in Honolulu is so beautiful.

But my favorite is the Kruzenshtern. It is as I have said before it originally was German made but Russia got her after World War Two as payment for the war…

So Russia’s famous tall ship, the Kruzenshtern, will set off on Wednesday for its 97-day fall voyage to visit seven European ports. “The route lies in the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The ship will visit seven ports in four countries: Helsinki (Finland), Warnemunde (Germany), Zeebrugge (Belgium), Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Spain), Vigo (Spain), Bremerhaven (Germany), and Rostock (Germany),” spokeswoman Irina Chiklinenkova said…

The Kruzenshtern with 120 naval cadets on board is scheduled to return to its home port of Kaliningrad on December 1. The Kruzenshtern is widely regarded as one of the jewels of the Russian sailing fleet. It was built in Germany in 1926 as a windjammer class ship (then called The Padova).

That is one beautiful ship…
