The Naval War Academy “N. G. Kuznetsov “ ( Russian Военно-морская академия им. Н. Г. Кузнецова ) is a military college for the academic training and further education of officers of the Russian naval fleet in Saint Petersburg and named after Nikolai Kuznetsov .


The history of this academy goes back to the 19th century. In 1827 the higher officer classes were formed in the Marine Cadet Corps. From 1862, these higher classes were referred to as the Academic Course for Maritime Sciences (Академический курс морских наук, Akademicheskij kurs morskich nauk). In 1877 the name was changed to Nikolaev Naval Academy (Николаевская морская академия, Nikolajewskaja morskaja akademija).

After the October Revolution , the Naval Academy began training commanders for the Soviet navy in 1919. From 1922 the training facility was called Naval War Academy of the Red Workers and Peasants Fleet . After the end of the Second World War , the engineering faculties became the independent naval war academy for shipbuilding and armament “A. N. Krylov ” . The Naval War Academy for commanders " K. J. Voroshilov " was created on the basis of the remaining commanding faculty . Just 15 years later, the two academies were merged to form the Naval War Academy . The seat of the academy was in Leningrad, today's Saint Petersburg .
