Interesting guided tour of the first nuclear powered surface ship and ice breaker. Vessel has an interesting history and is interesting in and of itself.

If you want to feel the place visited by Fidel Castro, Yuri Gagarin, who were impressed with the high-end solutions of 50-60s -that's definately your destinations. Excursions are happening 4 times a day and additional interactive excursions are happening twice a day

My visit to the icebreaker Lenin was one of the highlights of my Murmansk trip. Unfortunately tours only seem to be in Russian so you don't really get the benefit of a proper description of life on board. On the plus side though it's still...More
