I will talk about desperate expeditions in imperial times, the trials of the war years and the destruction of the Stalingrad scale, the price of industrial labor in the North and the patience of all those who are waiting for sailors from long voyages.

What awaits you
A journey from the past to the present On the excursion you will find out why Murmansk is located on a real fjord, and you will visit the very source of the Kola Bay. Hear about the indigenous inhabitants of the Kola Peninsula, about the successful and unsuccessful expeditions conducted by the Russian Empire to the North. Let's also talk about those who defended the Soviet Arctic and created the present Murmansk
Drama and romance of the North You will visit the memorial lighthouse and the cabin of the nuclear submarine "Kursk", where we will talk about the most important symbol of the enormous work, health and, sometimes, life that the sailors of Murmansk gave before and are giving now for the good of the Kola North. And later I will show one of the most romantic places in the city - the "Waiting" monument, reminding that from a long voyage, from heavy battles, from the endless tundra, where the creators of the North have worked and work for many months, they always wait at home, and eat for the sake of whom and what to work
"I know I cannot live without the sea, as the sea is dead without me" Climbing the hill to the monument to the Defenders of the Arctic, the watch "Alyosha" - the second highest in Russia after the Motherland-Mother, - we recall the lines from the piercing song of the war years "Farewell, rocky mountains." You will learn about the legendary defense of Murmansk on the Rybachy Peninsula. And at the "Chimneys", which remained instead of housing after the endless bombing of the second Stalingrad, gaze at the symbol of terrible destruction and stupidity of human wars
Nuclear icebreaker and new panorama Walking around the sea terminal, you will see the famous first nuclear icebreaker "Lenin", near which we will talk about the monument of Soviet science and powerful industry, progressive discoveries and new achievements. And finally, cross the Kola Bridge to see the last city of the Russian Empire, a toiler city from the western side of the Kola Bay.
