Russian Submarine Heading to Prague

A group of sea captains and army historians are trying to find the solution for the problem – how to get a 1954 submarine from Albania to the Czech Republic, where it should become a unique museum. Specialists plan, they would have the 1000-ton colossus transported on a special ramp on Mediterranean sea, through Gibraltar to Hamburg and from there on Elbe river to Prague.

β€œIt is technically possible, however we have not yet gained money for the transport and a place, where we could anchor the ship safely or a place in a dry dock.” The director of Historic Military Office Ales Knizek said. The vessel would than serve as the Museum of Cold War, and sure there would be hardly any better building that could host such an exhibition than this one, which was a part of it. Source: MF
