State Academy of Russia and is used for training purposes.
the history of this vessel goes back to 1926, when, according to the
old tradition, the daughter of one of the ship-owners
Laeisz, gave her the name Padua. No one could assume what a long and
nice destiny is intended to a new sailing vessel. It has entered into
ten of the largest sailing vessels of the world and made numerous
transoceanic and round-the-world expeditions.
