Awesome windjammer, with fascinating history - lovingly preserved, and put to good use - both for sailor-training, and for commercial tourism voyages.
Looks great amidst gray waters and sky, with it's impressive red masts and intricate ropes, cables and other nautical equipment.
It must be a popular attraction, judging by presence of visitors, enthusiastically taking "selfies" :)
Hope you'll have a chance to photograph this beauty in all it's splendor, with full wind in it's sails.
Interestingly, it was based in Riga (till 1991), and I didn't even know about it....
Thank you Tanya!

=> here and => here you can see an inlet of a rain drain how I know it. But yours in Peter is gigantic! You know, a big inlet is useless, because it can flow only as much water as the down pipe can swallow. ;-)
... well, technical details :)
