Saint Nicolas Boat-Museum

The boat “Saint Nicolas” was built in 1886 in Krasnoyarsk, at the request of manufacturer A. M. Sibiriakov. The steam engine was made in Sweden. The steamboat took its first trip in 1887. In June 1891 Tsarevich Nicolas (future Nicolas II) travelled on that boat from Beriozovka to Krasnoyarsk as he came back from its Eastern journey. It was also aboard the “Saint Nicolas” that Lenin was taken into exile in the city of Chuchenskoye in 1897. In 1970, an exhibition dedicated to Lenin’s life as an exile was displayed in the boat (for the 100th anniversary of the founder of the USSR). The most interesting part of the boat is the room where Nicolas II and Lenin used to have their lunch.
