A good place to visit if you haven't been on a aircraft carrier

This was the "Kiev" from the former USSR. Docked in mud with all power and military apparatus removed. It's a bit rusty and run-down. Only recommend if you've never been on one... read more

The line of multi colored plastic trees skirting the car park are an early hint that this place is 'special'. The main attraction of the Kiev aircraft carrier has been augmented by a theme park based on all things Russian. The Disney style 'main street' has multi colored dachas, shops selling Russian foodstuffs and - best of all - a... More

This was the "Kiev" from the former USSR. Docked in mud with all power and military apparatus removed. It's a bit rusty and run-down. Only recommend if you've never been on one, or got a military buzz kid, so that you could get some flavor. Otherwise, it's next worth the long drive. Noctice: the wind is brutal, so unlike you're...

We were a group of 6 who came here. When we heard aircraft carrier, the first thing we though was the modern age carrier. It's actually an old style Russian aircraft carrier. Other than not being able to live upto the expectation, it was a decent trip to the ship. Although there were a lot of old Russian and Chinese... More

Somehow I ended up visiting this ship on a scorching hot August day with my brother's family, my cousin's family, my 96-year-old grandma. The excitement was as high as the temperature when we finally arrived after a long search on the road due the GPS could not keep up the speed of road construction. From where we parked our car...

over priced, pay for everthing, will never take family or friends to visit. Just an old ship that you can never see the whole ship that you can se in the states. Do not waste your money or the time it takes to go there.

Very unusual museum. No signs in English so difficult to learn anything. It is huge. Give yourself a few hours to look around. Good war type souvenirs. Very hot in the summer on the decks so avoid midday and on holidays or be prepared for hoards of people following ridiuclously loud megaphones. Ice cream, drinks and plastic noodles available on...

As an aircraft carrier is the penultimate prestige symbol of any nation with naval related military aspirations, the carrier was purchased by China from the Ukraine for the purpose of developing their own capabilities. Having reverse-engineered the capabilities of this vessel, it is now offered as a tourist attraction. Comprised of several floors, the tourist has an opportunity to view... More

I spend about 1.5 hours touring this Soviet warship and found it more than enjoyable even though a lot of things we not authentic. It is not cheap-about $30 US so it can get expensive for a family to go. You can purchase food and drinks (even beer) while you visit and that is good. You will have a good... More

I thought this place was pretty cool. It was an excellent opportunity to see a Soviet era warship. The displays could certainly use some 'brightening up". Watch out for the low ceiling bulkheads, they will get you if you are not paying attention.

Even though this old Russian hangar ship is displayed with airplanes that ever was able to start or land on such a ship.... Even though there is a very very fake control room in the ship center... and even though they looped and dobbed the movie Red October to make it look like operations on the hangar.... dispite all these...
