The Cruiser Aurora was designed by K.Tokarevskiy and built in 1897-1900 in the yard “New Admiralteystvo”. During the Russian-Japanese war it participated in the battle of Tsushima. In February, 1917 the sailors of Aurora joined the revolutionary forces and hoisted the red flag. The blank shot of its prow gun served as the signal to storm the Winter Palace. During the years of the World War II it was moved to Oranienbaum, but its guns and sailors participated in the military actions on land. Since 1948 Aurora has been anchored on the Petrovskaya embankment.
