This retired Soviet aircraft carrier “Kiev” was completely transformed into a luxury hotel in China. Now families can relax in this hunk of steel while checking out all of its weaponry and entertaining capture the pirate water show.

 

The Kiev was laid down on 21 July 1970 in the former USSR and retired on 30 June 1993.

In 1996 she was sold to a Chinese company, and has been part of Binhai Aircraft Park, a military theme park in Tianjin since 1 May 2004.

In August 2011, the ex-Kiev began welcoming guests as its new role as a luxury hotel after a multimillion dollar refit.
