KALININGRAD, November 10. /TASS/. Russia’s legendary four-masted barque, the Kruzenshtern, has arrived in Russia’s westernmost port of Kaliningrad to end its 2015 voyage, a spokesperson for the ship's owner said on Tuesday.
The barque’s arrival at the homeport was delayed by seven hours by a heavy storm, she added.
In 2015 the Kruzenshern covered over 30,000 nautical miles, visited 11 countries and seven Russian ports and part in international sailing festivals.
The Kruzenshtern was built in Germany in 1926. After World War II, the barque was transferred to the Soviet Union as a reparation payment and renamed after a legendary Russian navigator, Johann Krusenstern (1770-1846), who led Russia's first round-the-world voyage.
Since the modernization in the 1970s, the ship has served as a training vessel for naval cadets.
