Overview

The submarine is one of the most popular objects of the Museum of the World Ocean. The B-413 was built in Leningrad and was launched in September, 1968. During 30 years it had been serving in the North and Baltic Fleets. The submarine was moored at the museum quay in June, 2000. It is the only one in the country and a few in the world belonging to pre-atomic period of undersea fleet. Moreover, it is preserved in its original state. Firm and light hulls, superstructure, all the major and auxiliary mechanisms, equipment and weapons are the same as they were after the submarine was excluded from the Navy. What strikes you most as you walk along the narrow corridors and squeeze through the seemingly miniscule portholes that protect each section, is the incredible mechanical complexity. This 1960s technology required pipes, cumbersome and hard wearing switches and large well worn wheels to keep the submarine either afloat or submerged, as needs dictated.

The museum offers a rare opportunity to glimpse the life in the tight confines of the once-feared Foxtrot-class diesel-electric patrol submarine. You move from one end of the submarine to the other through the series of narrow corridors and round hatches – the latter will...More

Very openminded and friendly guide on the submarine. Some guides on the submarine speak a little english. But I'm sure You'd get to know more if you're able to understand russian, or bring along a professional guide.

We had never been in a submarine and it was awesome. The way these sailors have to live isn't my kind of bag but we were impressed

How often do you have a chance to get into a real submarine? Well this one is a great example of what life inside one may be like. Worth a trip.

Yes, I had a morning to spare, so I decided to visit this museum; if you are in vessel/war stuff this is definitely worth a visit. The price is negligible, but the submarine is really cool, I strongly suggest it.

Spent a terrific hour while roaming the narrow corridors, peeking inside the sailors' sleeping quarters, the lavatory, the kitchen, the community rooms, and other spaces. An awesome amount of ironmongery, miles or wires, cables, and pipes. Interesting information through audio guide, however, in Russian only....More
