Two Russian submarines being transported through the Northern Sea Route from one part of Russia to another. The Northern Sea Route is where the ships go through the Northern Arctic ocean when it’s free of ice.

his way the journey is almost two and a half times shorter than if they go through the traditional sea route starting in St. Petersburg, then the Baltics – Mediterranean – Red Sea – Indian Ocean – South-East Asia – Japan – and then finally Vladivostok.

This long route is more than 23,000 kilometers long and was traditionally used if the ships from the western part of Russia wanted to reach the far eastern part of the country.

In the summer, they have an alternative and can go through the Northern Sea Route which is around 10,000 km long.257812_original
