The world's second largest sailing ship is in port in St. John's.

The Kruzenshtern, a four-masted Russian vessel, made its way into St. John's harbour Monday morning.

The ship, built in 1926, is more than 144 meters long and 51 meters high.

It's won sailing races around the world, but is now used mostly as a training vessel. The ship will be in port until Friday. It will be open to the public for tours starting on Tuesday.
