Monument to Ship Built by Peter I to Appear in St. Petersburg

Monument to the first linear ship Poltava will be set up in St. Petersburg.

      The first linear ship Poltava was built in the St. Petersburg Admiralty in the 18th century with active participation of the Emperor Peter I.

      It is already known that the monument will be set up in the Robespierre Embankment.

      The first Russian 54-gun sailing linear ship was set afloat on June 15 (26), 1712 from the shipyard of the St. Petersburg Admiralty. Peter I took personal part in the building of this ship. The ship was named in honor of the victory gained by the Russian army over Swedes in the Poltava battle.

      During its service from 1712 to 1732 the ship was a part of the Baltic Navy. In the course of the active service of the linear ship Peter I held the flag on it twice.
