Russian Tall Ship
ENDED FEB 28, 2010 If you see a big Russian tall ship floating in Burrard Inlet during the Games (see video), it's all part of the festivities surrounding the Olympics. On Feb 10th the four-masted sailing ship Kruzenshtern arrived in North Vancouver to help promote the Sochi 2014 Winter Games. The ship will be accessible at North Vancouver's Burrard Dry Dock several days a week as well as for private sailings. The Russian President is expected to pay a visit as well as other senior Russian dignitaries. CityCaucus.com has been told the ship will likely be open to the public only during the day. Check out the post we wrote on the ship's arrival for more information. You can see the ship docked there now from the public pier. According to comments, there is an admission fee ($18 adults, $8 youth). Therefore, until we are clear on the details we are taking it off our "Free" venues listing.
The dock is located east of the Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver. The best way to access it is via the SeaBus link across Burrard Inlet between downtown Vancouver and North Vancouver. For directions on how to get there, click here. Tours available – visit www.kruzenshtern.net.
