EML Lembit, a story of a submarine

Inside3Submarine EML Lembit, launched in 1936, was the pride of the Estonian Navy and is  unique on a worldwide scale. The retired metal giant, weighing as much as 550 passenger cars, is now accommodated in the Seaplane Hangar, waiting for guests in order to tell them about her colourful past. Let us dive into maritime history with Estonia’s only surviving submarine!

The tour will touch on the origins of the submarine; we will also talk about the crew and life on board and follow EML Lembit’s sway in the rollers of history — during war or peace times — and under different rules until her arrival in our Seaplane Harbour.
