KALININGRAD, March 4. /TASS/. Russia’s legendary four-masted barque, the Kruzenshtern, will celebrate its 90th jubilee afloat, covering more than 10,400 marine miles in 175 days, an official of the Baltic fishing fleet academy said on Friday.
The barque will turn 90 on June 24.
"The ship will be in the sea then," Irina Obraztsova told TASS. "The celebration will take place when the barque arrives at the homeport in Kaliningrad in September."
According to Obraztsova, the barque has undergone repair works and is preparing for setoff from Russia’s westernmost port of Kaliningrad to Germany, France, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
More than 300 naval cadets will be onboard during three training voyages.
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 Kruzenshtern (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.
