ADMIRAL KUZNETSOV NAVAL ACADEMY (NA) (73/1 Vyborgskaya Embankment). Established in April, 1919, on the basis of Nikolaevsky Marine Academy for preparing command and command-engineering personnel for the Soviet Navy. It was renamed the Naval Academy of the Worker-Peasants' Red Fleet in 1922, and was given Voroshilov's name in 1931. The Higher Navy Courses were instituted at the NA in 1925 to train high-ranking officers. They were later renamed Courses for Command Personnel Training, and then Academic Courses for Officers. The NA's current building was constructed in 1938-40 (architects A.I. Vasilyev, A.P. Romanovsky). The Navy Shipbuilding and Armament Academy was created on the basis of the NA engineering faculties in 1945, and the two academies merged in 1960, which was first named after Marshal A.A. Grechko, and in 1990 after Admiral N.G. Kuznetsov. The NA is one of the leading Russian centers for the development of naval art, as well as preparation and use of naval force and facilities.
