It is Russia’s fourth commercial port. The region’s enviable geographic location even made it a landing point for the joint Allied intervention in Russia at a time of the Russian civil. It also gave it a crucial role in Cold War. One of Russia’s major naval bases, Severomorsk, is located close to Murmansk.

This Murmansk Tour includes visits to the Memorial to Submariners, the Church of the Savior on the Waters, Kursk submarine memorial, a memorial to the Defenders of the Soviet Arctic, and the monument “Waiting”.

In the afternoon you will be taking the tour of the nuclear icebreaker Lenin, the world’s first nuclear-powered surface ship, which was later converted into a museum. In the evening enjoy northern lights viewing on what is one of the best northern lights tours Russia has to offer.
