The Krusenstern or Kruzenshtern (Russian: Барк «Крузенштерн») in Boston, MA

KRUZENSHTERN is 376-foot in length, four-masted barque rig, and the second largest traditional sail training vessel in the world still in operation.

The ship was built in 1927 as PADUA in Bremerhave, Germany, and was given to the USSR in 1946 as war reparation after World War II.

She was renamed KRUZENSHTERN after the early 19th century Baltic German explorer in Russian service, Adam Johann Krusenstern (1770-1846).

Since 1990 the vessel has been used as a sail training vessel by the Baltic Academy in Kalingrad, Russia and is supported by Tall Ship Friends, a non-profit organization in Hamburg, Germany.
