Photos - B-413 submarine Kaliningrad

In 2007 Comtourist planned to stay a few days Kaliningrad and the B-413 came up as the major tourist attraction during our preparation. We decided to visit the submarine accompanied by a former Russian navy officer as guide. The tour was a great experience and we were able to shoot some nice photos.

The B-413 is a Soviet Foxtrot class diesel submarine owned by the Kaliningrad Museum of the World Ocean together with some other ship like the Vitaz and the Cosmonaut Viktor Patsaev research ship. The B-413 is maintained by retired submarine crew who give tour to visitors. The cramped compartments of the B-413 are all in original state with hundreds of pipes, meters, tubes, switches, leavers and so on. In the torpedo room is an exposition showing models of various Soviet submarines, a navy diver and locations of other museum submarines. Highlight is of the B-413 is the periscope room in the sail with a working periscope that can be operated by visitors.
