Facts: A 100-year-old tall ship and the legend route of the Northern Sea Route

The Sedov completed the east-west passage this week having passed the south tip of the Novaya Zemlya archipelago, marking the easternmost point of Europe.

The vessel is expected to arrive Murmansk, Russia sometime next week.

The journey was made possible due to unprecedented low levels of sea-ice.

The Sedov is a four-masted, steel-hulled barque that is one of the largest of its type in the world.

The tall ship was originally built in Germany in 1921 but was acquired by the Soviet Union in 1945 as a war repatriation.
