Frigate "Pamyaty Azova"
« on: February 23, 2007, 02:17:22 AM »
I have an question: where in Europe (or everywhere else) there is an freegate (like museum etc.) which looks like
frigate "Pamyaty Azova" on which Nicholas visited Japan in 1891 year.
This type of the freegate, was built on 1890 year and had  mastes and pipes - both.

The iron-clad frigate "Pamyat' Azova" was later re-classified as armored cruiser. I doubt that a ship of this type has survived anywhere (except a somewhat similar - but built a dozen years later - cruiser "Aurora" in Petersburg). However, fine large-scale models of ships very similar to "Pamyat' Azova" may be found in European naval museum. I've seen a few of them in the Musée de la Marine in Paris.

A few years ago I visited an American warship similar to the Pamyat’ Azova, the USS Olympia, launched in 1892 and now preserved as a museum in Philadelphia, USA. Here are some modern exterior photos.

Visiting was an awesome experience. Really felt like I was on a late 19th century warship.  Here are photos of the interior :

On an interesting sidenote, the U.S.S. Olympia was part of the American forces sent to intervene in the Russian Civil War at Murmansk. Later,  it was sent to France to transport the body of the Unknown American Soldier back to the United States.  By 1919, ships of this design were considered to be obsolete, but were still useful for situations where they wouldn't have to meet more modern ships in combat.  The obsolete battleship U.S.S. Oregon was sent to Vladivstock as part of the American interventionist forces there.

A question
Is no photos of the interiors of the Frigate "Pamyaty Azova"?

Thanks for the answer

Warship International magazine issue 1/1977 does have an artical on this ship and its design. It contains some photos of the ship including one of the deck but no interior shots. you could contact them and ask if they have any .
