Leningrad to St. Petersburg

The M/S Regatta docked at the Lieutenant Schmidt embankment in St. Petersburg behind the Soviet “project 613″ patrol submarine C-189. Strange to see them beside each other. The C-189 harkening back to the cold war when she would have been docked in Leningrad. There were  about 250 of this class submarine built by the Soviet Navy during the 50′s and 60′s. This, it seems is the only survivor in Russia. It is permanently docked at the Lieutenant Schmidt embankment and is supposed to be opening as a museum, however it has been a year since that announcement was made and it still isn’t open.

  1. I cannot decipher much of your site. Why is the background black?
    I am just back from a Baltic Cruise and thought your site would be interesting.
