The world's first nuclear icebreaker "Lenin" will be towed from its berth at the Murmansk Sea Terminal to a dock in the port area for repairs with the help of tugs. The work is scheduled to take place from June 15 to July 25, the official tourism portal Murmansk.Travel reported.

"Excursions will not be conducted during this time," the statement said. The icebreaker was commissioned in 1959 and during its service provided navigation on the Northern Sea Route and led thousands of ships through the ice of the Arctic. "At the same time, the "Lenin" covered 654,400 nautical miles, which is more than three times the distance from the Earth to the Moon," the portal notes.

Since 2009, the nuclear icebreaker has been operating as a museum and has become one of the "calling cards" of the Murmansk region. On board are the Information Center for Atomic Energy and the permanent exhibition "Atom and the Arctic" - an interactive museum and educational complex on the history of the nuclear icebreaker fleet, the development of the Northern Sea Route, industrial development, climatic features and ecology of the Arctic. Since 2009, the exhibition center has been visited by over 665,000 visitors, 79,000 of them last year, Murmansk.Travel writes.

The icebreaker "Lenin" is a federal cultural heritage site.
