Sailing Away From Russia And Its History

Called a “ship graveyard of sorts” what cruise passengers see sailing away from St Petersburg, Russia are Cold War remnants of a Russia that once was, left to rust and the effects of the sea, as we see in these photos captured from the decks of Azamara Quest on our way to Estonia.

In all directions, Azamara Quest passengers could see remnants of a Russia that once was as we left the shiny domes of St. Petersburg behind. Big ships, small ships, parts of ships abandoned in whole or part, some in drydock, others alongside where we were sailing, it was a surreal scene on the way to Tallinn, Estonia where we would find a centuries-old medieval town full of life the next day.
