Valentine Chiguir, daughter of Nikolai Chiguir, who was the first TASS (official news agency of Russia) correspondent to Cuba in 1959, told Prensa Latina that a photography exhibition, with unpublished images showing the link between both nations, travels aboard the ship.
The sailing ship carries some exhibitions and one of the two most important is dedicated to the 65th Anniversary of the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), and the other to 50 years of the Cuban Revolution.
The Kruzenshtern set sail from Kaliningrado port, West of Russia, to travel throughout the world with its photography exhibitions.
This sailing ship belonged to Germany first, under the name of Padua. It passed to the Soviets after World War II and now belongs to Russia.
