Vessel Kruzenshtern is of much interest in Tallinn

Russian barque Kruzenshtern, one of the largest traditional sailing vessels in the world, was visited by 18 thousand people during the festival Tallinn Sea Days 2011 which was held from 15 to 17 July in the capital of Estonia, reports Estonian TV services.

Kruzenshtern has become the main attraction at the festival, say fest organizers. Visitors were queuing to get there from morning till evening for 2 hours or so.

Tallinn authorities hold a fest reception for the ship crew and Estonian citizens who during the Soviet times were crew members of Kruzenshtern, when she was based in Tallinn from 1980 up to 1991.

The Kruzenshtern is a four masted barque and tall ship that was built in 1926 at Geestemünde in Bremerhaven, Germany as the Padua. She was surrendered to the USSR in 1946 as war reparation and renamed after the early 19th century Baltic German explorer in Russian service, Adam Johann Krusenstern (1770–1846).
