Please guess the warship, only clue is she was built shortly after WW2. Good Luck )))

Is that a recent photograph? Is the ship still afloat?

I took this photograph last year in August when visiting Novorossiysk. Unfortunately I did not get on to the ship despite its museum status because of repair works. Going to Anapa and Novorossiysk again in about a month, so if I get anymore photographs, or get to board the ship, I'll post the pictures here.

You can find her on Google maps if you type in 'Novorossiysk' and look at the ships in the harbor, the guns are quite distinctive even on Google.

kind regards

Yes...
But not in Novorossisk, and in Sevastropol...

I must admit I had no idea this ship was preserved as a museum. I thought HMS Belfast was the last ship of its kind still around. It's great to learn new things everyday! :D

Thanks Karl, you're welcome )))

Here is another view of the Kutuzov, I did not upload this for the quiz because the side on profile might have made it to easy to guess.

This is the war memorial at Novorossiysk, this photograph does not really give an impression of the memorials size, its a massive structure that sits on the water front overlooking the harbor. There is a museum inside the monument, but I don't have any photograph of this out of respect.

Kind regards, ober )))

Likewise I must also confess to this, I was on holiday in Anapa last year and my wife started telling me about this ship in Novorossiysk (Anapa's about 50 miles from Novorossiysk) so I arranged to visit her.

I have visited HMS Belfast many times (growing up in Britain with an interest in warships), I have many photographs of her, but did not post these because she is to famous and easy to spot. In the next couple of years, time depending I want to visit St. Petersburg and the Aurore. Also considering going to Finland, so might get a chance to see that prototype IIA class u-boat near Helsinki. Kind regards, ober )))
