The Aurora cruiser is one of the main symbols of the October Revolution. On November 7, 1917, at 21: 00, the Cruiser Aurora fired one salvo from the bow gun, which served as a signal for the soldiers to storm the Winter Palace in Saint-Petersburg. All the key points in the city were already occupied by the Lenin`s soldiers (Bolshevists). It remained only to capture the Winter Palace, where the Provisional Government was located. So it became the main symbol of the October Revolution.
