In connection with the recent holiday - Day of the sailor-submariner, I decided to show photographs of militaryhistorical monuments of Vladivostok, which I managed to make during my morning run around the city.

Naval monuments of Vladivostok

Let's start with the C-56 submarine in the Memorial Complex on the Ship's Quay of Vladivostok.

1. C-56 (C - "Medium") - Soviet diesel-electric torpedo submarine from the time of World War II of the IX-bis series.

2. The submarine was laid 24 November 1936, at the shipyard named after André Marty (from 30 March 1992, State Enterprise Admiralty Shipyards) in Leningrad. Sections by rail delivered to the plant number 202 ("Dalzavod" behalf K. Voroshilov) in Vladivostok, where the final assembly. Launched 25 December 1939 of the year, 20 October 1941 entered service.

6. The C-56 is the most productive Soviet submarine in the Great Patriotic War, in terms of the number of reliably sunk targets, while in the submerged tonnage it is significantly inferior to C-13 (44,1 KGT) and L-3 (at least 22,5 KGT).

7. After World War II, she continued service in the Northern Fleet. During the period of July 10 - October 5, 1954 of the year made an inter-fleet transfer on the Northern Sea Route from Ekaterininskaya harbor to Tarja Bay (Kamchatka), and then to Vladivostok, thus making the round-the-world cruise on the Northern Sea Route from Ekaterininskaya Harbor.

24. At the pier, a memorial ship "The Red Pennant" was erected on an eternal anchor. It was launched on the Okhta River in St. Petersburg in 1911, and was called “Admiral Zavoyko” in honor of the hero of the Peter and Paul Defense 1854, Zavoyko Vasily Stepanovich. In 1923, the Admiral Zavoyko returned to Vladivostok and became the first ship of the Soviet Republic in the Pacific, having received a new name, the Red Pennant. He carried the guard service for the protection of the maritime borders of the USSR, and in 1945, he took part in military operations in the Pacific.

25. Launched in October 1910 at the Okhta shipyard in St. Petersburg under the name "Admiral Zavoyko." The yacht was built by order of the Kamchatka Governor-General and was intended for the needs of the local administration. In August, the 1911 ship arrived in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and was used as a messenger and passenger ship. During the First World War, the ship was subordinate to the Military Department.

26. After the October Revolution, in conditions of general decomposition, the crew of the yacht 29 November 1917 went over to the side of the Soviet government. In June, the 1918 ship was repulsed by the White Guards, but in January 1921 was captured by the troops of the Far Eastern Republic and incorporated into the Siberian military flotilla. During the counter-revolutionary coup in Vladivostok in May, the 1921 Admiral Zavoyko was in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, where the yacht was carrying ammunition for the local military revolutionary committee. Upon learning of the coup, the crew decided to evacuate to Shanghai, where the ship was located for about two years. After Vladivostok was abandoned by units of the Zemsky rati in October 1922, the yacht was to return to Russia. 24 January 1923 on it was raised by the naval flag of the USSR and two months later the ship arrived in Vladivostok. At the same time, in March, the 1923 yacht was transferred to the class of patrol ships and renamed the “Red Pennant”.

27. During World War II, "Red Vympel" performed work on the laying of submarine cables, provided the parking of submarines on remote unequipped raids and combat operations of ships in the Pacific Ocean. In October, 1944, it was converted into a control hydroacoustic station. After the war, for the fulfillment of tasks to detect enemy mines and develop methods for trapping their 23 crew member were awarded orders and medals.


29. 11 March 1958 veteran was put on eternal parking in the Golden Horn Bay and turned into a memorial museum ship.

    This is my city!
    Still, all sorts of ... did not try to constantly write some muck with a Chinese marker, it would be great!
    One thing is insulting ... on the Russkiy Island, the entire military infrastructure was destroyed. All memory of valiant ancestors was erased ...
    I have pictures from the Fridge hill ... There, where the whole of Vladivostok is being shot through ... I will not post it. All guns are painted with swastikas and mats. THARI!

    At this same S-56, how many guys took the oath of office for many years !!!
    And I was there.
    And the fact that teenagers on the walls are hooligans is not a problem, age. Of these hooligan boys, later often benefit
    And the forts are being destroyed, a pity of course. Billions are needed to maintain a more or less tolerable state of the entire fortification infrastructure in the city, suburbs and islands. Thank God that at least something is allocated to individual museum objects.

    Vladivostok is a very beautiful city, but I prefer Khabarovsk.
    Khabarovsk is a city of military glory and recently also a city of records.

      Be smart!
      If you buy a round-trip airline ticket in December, you can make a trip in April, for example, along the Moscow-Vladivostok route, and vice versa, for ridiculous money. I regret that I myself have not used it so far.
      However, my friend and family waved Kamchatka to relatives a week ago. 9 tr per person round trip !!! For three with a daughter 18 tr round trip.
      In December, a few months in advance, on a stock.

    And the tank tower, it seems, from some kind of torpedo boat: /
    The tower itself is quite rare - stamping.

      Rather, from an armored boat - such torpedo guns were not installed.

    Monuments are not bad.
    I had the honor to donate a small amount for the installation of memorial plates with the names of the dead sailors of the Pacific Fleet submarines.

    In April, 2010 r was the first time in life in Vladivostok. The weather, of course, did not please - wet snow, rain and slush mixed with mud - everything looks much more elegant in photographs. But, despite this, we went to the Ship Embankment, examined all the exhibits. Including were inside C-56. Quite a rich exposition inside, especially for those who only saw the submarines in the movies and in pictures. repeat
    And about the fortress, local comrades said that the condition of the monuments there is appalling, the guns just wallow and rust. I myself have not been there, I don’t know ...

    I was in Vladivostok a couple of years ago. I really liked it. The first thing I visited was S-56. On about. Russian did not hit. It is a pity that there is reason to return.

    Expensive to fly. Yes, and scary. It’s scary to stupid, I’m not even ashamed to admit it. repeat
    I remembered. When they sat down at the airport in Artyom, I saw there old smoked Tu-134. It’s clear that they’re breathing. The engines are sheathed. When we got into a minibus and were taken to TOVMI, I asked the sailors who met what kind of junk it was at the airport. They were even a little offended and said that these are planes for domestic flights - they fly to Sakhalin and Kamchatka. I had such a face - belay . And one even said that some time ago one did not have such a chassis, and he circled Sakhalin for a long time, burning kerosene, but then he let the chassis out and sat down safely.
    I told my comrades that I’ll go back by train, they say, fly yourself. lol

    I was there on a business trip. The locals were asked - how do you live here? All roads - up and down. Yes, even in the pits. Yes, even traffic jams. Yes, the climate is peculiar. My comrades and I acclimatized for a rather long time, but got used to changing time zones.

    Vladivostok, Vladivostok .... I remember with a jerk how they put the S-56 on a pedestal, and it was there, the KTOF museum was in the church then, coastal guns from Port Arthur, a monument to the sailors of the Merchant Fleet, Admiral Makarov on Lugovoi and a gun on Tigrovaya ... And the locomotive in which the Japanese burned Lazo and the place of execution of Bonivur, Soviet history, they do not like to remember it now. Then we lived in Gornastay, with marines nearby, then we moved to Tikhaya, on Dobrovolsky on the hill itself, climbed the catacombs (Fort Linevich). And when the salute was on May 9, the day of the Navy, everyone climbed out and looked at the hill, all the ships in festive illumination , a sight not forgotten. And the photo is really small, if someone had collected all the photos in one album a long time ago, it would have been great.

    Cool stuff! Thank! As if he had been to Vladik again. He studied there at the institute, the last time there was in 1992. Now the city has changed - for the better, of course. I would like to go there again, but ... I propose to supplement this material with a monument to the dead sailors (Churkin Peninsula), a military-historical museum on Leninsky ...
