      Legendary cruiser 1st rank "Aurora", moored in Petrograd embankment, has become one of the symbols of St. Petersburg. This ship a glorious biography. He was launched on May 11, 1900, and in May 1905 received its baptism of fire in Tsusіmskіm in battle during the Russian-Japanese War. Served as the "Aurora" and a training ship for midshipmen - almost to the beginning of the First World War, during which the cruiser was also actively involved in the fighting. "Aurora" held Defense of Leningrad during the Great Patriotic War.

      However, for all the cruiser "Aurora" is primarily due to the events of 1917, when a volley from the cruiser was the signal for the storming of the Winter Palace and the beginning of the Great October Revolution.
