The first icebreaker was invented in the 18th century. Then it was a small steamer which broke ice in the harbor of Philadelphia. Since then, a long time has passed, and now the real giants with nuclear reactors break Arctic ice. We invite you to take a look at 10 largest and most impressive icebreakers in the world.

10. "Polarstern"

"Polarstern" is 118-meter German icebreaker, which was commissioned in 1982. It is intended exclusively for exploring the expanses of the Arctic and Antarctic. Already in 2017, the "old man" is planning to replace with its improved version - "Polarstern-2".
