Name: 50 Years of Victory

50 Years of Victory

I/B 50 Let Pobedy (“50 Years of Victory”) is the largest and most modern nuclear-powered icebreaker in the world. 75,000 horsepower engines and formidable spoon-shaped bow allow her to crush through multi-year sea ice up to three meters thick. She is not a tourist ship. Rather, she was purpose-built to pilot scientific and cargo ships to otherwise inaccessible parts of the Russian High Arctic. Only during the brief Arctic summer do adventurers get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to travel aboard this real working icebreaker to the geographic North Pole.
