Being the integral part of Vladivostok’s glorious history, the Pacific Fleet was a reliable guard of Soviet Union's Far Eastern sea borders during the
Great Patriotic War and significantly contributed to defeating the fascist invaders. The city has several monuments devoted to Russian seamen's heroism
and selflessness: the Memorial Submarine S-56 installed on the Ships' Quay is one of them. Upon its origin in 1936, the submarine S-56 was the first rank vessel equipped with powerful
engines. Having strong torpedo and artillery arms, high speed and self-sufficiency, such submarine was a dire threat
In 1941, submarine S-56 became a part of the Pacific Fleet, and a year later, it was sent from Vladivostok to polar region in order to increase Northern Fleet's war strength.
During the World War II the submarine passed two oceans - the Pacific and the Atlantic, nine seas - including Caribbean Sea, Sargasso Sea and North Sea, and scores of islands and
straits. Over this time it made eight military campaigns, carried out twelve torpedo attacks that resulted in sinking ten rival ships and damaging four more. Over three thousand depth
bombs were dropped on it, but the S-56 remained unsinkable. In the year 1975, to honor the 30th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War, the submarine was installed
on the pedestal of eternal glory .
