C-189 Submarine Museum information
This Whiskey Class Soviet submarine was built in 1954, and – incredibly, once you've looked around inside – served in the Soviet navy until 1990. It has been renovated, repainted and can be visited if a big cruise ship is not docked on the next door Lieutenant Schmidt Passenger Terminal.
Climbing into the cramped interior, you can see the cramped living quarters, the engine room, look through the still working periscope and see where the torpedoes were loaded and fired.
