KALININGRAD, September 14 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian legendary four-masted tall ship Kruzenshtern will begin its 97 day voyage on Wednesday to call at seven ports in four countries, spokeswoman Irina Chiklinenkova told Itar-Tass.
The Kruzenshtern will sail across the Baltic Sea, the Northern Seas and the Atlantic Ocean. It will call at Finland’s Helsinki, Germany’s Warnemunde, Bremershafen and Rostock, Belgium’s Zeebrugge and Spain’s Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Vigo.
In ports of destination the ship will be opened for public to show a photo exhibition devoted to the history of the Kruzenshtern that turned 85 years in summer. Visitors will be able to see unique photos made during the ship’s round-the-world voyages, two-year international trans-Atlantic expedition and multiple regattas.
Over 120 students of the Baltic Fishing Fleet State Academy that owns the ship, of the Kaliningrad and Yeisk fishing fleet colleges and the Volga-Caspian maritime college will undergo training onboard the ship during this voyage.
The Kruzenshtern will return to the port of registration in Russia’s westernmost city of Kaliningrad in December.
