Aurora – Ship That Changed The World

Share/Bookmark

The cruiser Aurora was built between 1897 and 1900 in St. Petersburg and joined Russia’s Baltic fleet in 1903. The ship measures 126.8 meters in length, 16.8 meters in width and weighs a staggering 7,600 tons. Maintaining a speed of 20 knots it can travel independently for up to 1,440 sea miles. It took an active part in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05 and participated in the Tsusima battle, in which most of Russia’s Pacific fleet was destroyed. After the war the ship was used for personnel training and during the October revolution of 1917 gave the signal by firing a blank shot to storm of the Winter Palace, which was being used as a residence by the democratic, but largely ineffective Provisional Government. That moment triggered a dramatic episode in Russia’s history and was the start of over 70 years of Communist leadership.

The Kamchatka brown bear also called Ursus arctos beringianus is closely related to the Alaskan brown bear. It can be found on the Kamchatka Peninsula, Karaginskiy Island, Shantar Islands, and Kuril Islands, in eastern Siberia. Kamchatka has one of the highest brown bear populations, with an average density of one brown bear per square mile. Brown bears are one of the most widely distributed large carnivores in the world. Male Kamchatka brown bears can reach a weight of 700 kilograms. Their large physical size is a result of their access to rich food sources like salmon, pine nuts and berries.

St. Basil’s Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of the Intercession, is located on Red Square, beside the Moscow Kremlin. It is one of the most outstanding and remarkable monuments of Old Russian architecture. It was commissioned by Ivan the Terrible to celebrate his conquest of the Tatar city of Kazan on October 1, 1552, the day of the feast of the Intercession.
