Well I did see Aurora, however just a briefly as the cruising ship passed on Kronstad were the old cruiser was docked apparently for repairs. I do remember reading from somewhere that they are refitting her for the 100 year celebration of the October revolution in 2017.
However othervice the trip was good, I succeeded in my both prime tasks for the trip which were visiting the Central Naval Museum and by some books of russian/soviet fleet which are impossible to get here in Finland. Sadly my time run out for visiting more of the historical locations and other museums but it leaves me a reason to go back there at some point. After all its beatifull city.
I'll post some photos of the Central Naval museum later on once I've organised them.
