Russia - St Petersburg - 2009 - kiwirallyfan
Russian Cruiser Aurora, built in 1900.  It was from this ship that the shot marking the start of the October Revolution (1917?) was fired.  This ship is now considered a national monument, and is so hallowed that during WWII the Russians sank it to protect it from German bombs.
