The vessel is preparing for the next year’s voyages; also hosted a meeting at the dockyard in Svetliy, Kaliningrad.
The schedule for 2015
is officially confirmed. As usual, Kruzenshtern is going to have three voyages packed with ports. This year is special, though: all three upcoming voyages are going to be carried out in the context of 70th anniversary of victory in WWII celebrations.
Russian ports and the Cities of Military Glory are going to play a special part in celebrations. Sevastopol, Kerch, Novorossiysk, Murmansk and Arkhangelsk all keep the traces of Russian sailors’ heroic deeds. Open boards, meetings with veterans and photo exhibitions on board vessel are going to be held.
In foreign ports cooperation with various civil society organizations and visits of memorable spots related to the European fights with Fascism are planned. However, due to the current foreign policy situation the call in each foreign port is going to be decided peculiarly. Changes in the schedule are possible, beware.
Kruzenshtern is going to celebrate the Victory day on the 9th of May in Saint-Petersburg. Cadets and the crew are going to take part in the events dedicated to the memorable day.
