On May 11, 1900 the cruiser «Aurora» was launched at the «Admiralty Shipyard» («New Admiralty»)
Aurora is a Pallada-class protected cruiser of Baltic Fleet, registered as an object of federal cultural heritage. During the Russo-Japanese War Aurora survived the Battle of Tsushima. The cruiser also participated in the World War I. A blank shot from Aurora's forecastle gun signaled the start of the assault on the Winter Palace — the beginning of the October Revolution. In September 2014, the ship was towed to the Admiralty Shipyard to be overhauled. The ship will return to the usual place near Pertrogradskaya quay in 2016.
