Seven Seas Collection

Jump to: navigation, search

A Port is not just a place to prepare a ship before battle, it is a location filled with a plethora of unique objects that can be admired in detail for hours. This collection is dedicated to the game's Seventh Anniversary. To mark the event, we invite you on a tour of 16 historic Ports to admire their natural landscapes, architectural ensembles, and sights, as well as scenes from bygone eras—cars traveling down streets, gushing fountains, ships cutting the water's surface, and airplanes flying by. The Seven Seas collection will allow you to look at familiar locations from fascinating perspectives and learn interesting facts from the histories of famous ports.

The overall collection is comprised of 4 sub-collections of 4 items, totalling 16 items. Items may be bought for 1 duplicates.

Naval Base

The Naval Base Port is a typical shipbuilding facility of the 1940s. The prototype of this Port is the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, built in Hawaii between 1908 and 1919.

In the center of the Port are two dry docks around which rail gantry cranes operate. To the left of the Captain's ship, you can find two slipways for building and launching ships. On the farthest of them, you can see a destroyer's hull lit with flashes of electric welding. At the outfitting quay, you can see a battleship put afloat, as well as a huge tower crane operating nearby. On the starboard side, behind the tall building of the machine shop, you can see another two dock basins.

The Port's red-brick industrial buildings of the early 20th century coexist with Rationalism-style industrial buildings of the 1930s and 1940s.


Port Hawaii is located on the volcanic island of Oahu, lit by the dawn sun. he Port pays tribute to the memory of the Pearl Harbor naval base, which went down in history after the Japanese attack on December 7, 1941, marking the beginning of World War II in the Pacific.

Ford Island, which hosts a naval airfield, lies in the center of Pearl Bay. On the port side of the Captain's ship, you can see the piers and warehouses of the supply depot facilities, as well as sheds and water pumps. On the right side are the docks, slipways, industrial buildings, and shipbuilding cranes of the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. The quay with a ship moored nearby is lined with residential buildings of typical Hawaiian architecture of the 1940s. Behind them, you can see red-and-white radio antenna towers—they connected the naval headquarters with ships throughout the eastern Pacific.


The Port of Hamburg takes us to the first half of the 20th century. The city's historic center was destroyed during World War II, so you'll be able to see all the sights of the main German sea gates of the late 1920s and early 1930s in our Port only.

On the starboard side of the Captain's ship, you can see the vast industrial facilities, smoking chimneys, and numerous cranes of the famous Blohm & Voss shipyard. The Gothic spires of Hanseatic Hamburg rise skyward on the left. Each building has a history of its own. The picturesque round rotunda, which can be seen from the transport moored at the quay, is the entrance to one of the oldest underwater road tunnels in Europe. It was opened in 1911 and still runs under the Elbe. It's a true miracle of engineering!


In the Port of Dunkirk, you find yourself at the epicenter of Operation Dynamo (May 26—June 4, 1940), which involved the evacuation of British, French, and Belgian troops from the city when the Germans surrounded it.

Using hundreds of pre-war and wartime photographs of old Dunkirk, our artists modeled over 1,200 ground objects to recreate the city's appearance at that time. Watching the Port from the deck of a ship, you can almost feel the horror of being in a city on fire and under attack from aircraft and artillery. During the operation, the Allies managed to evacuate 338,000 soldiers and officers to England from the east mole and improvised piers, which can be seen on the starboard side.

Salty winds and white waves

  Salty winds and white waves  

Like all historical Ports, Rotterdam can be called a time machine. From the side of your ship, you see the neat buildings of the Dutch city's center along the banks of the Nieuwe Maas. Most of the buildings have not survived to this day. Sights that survived are easy to recognize: On the starboard side behind the houses are the openwork supports of the 1927 De Hef vertical-lift railroad bridge, which stopped operating in 1993.

To the left of the ship on the banks of the Old Harbor is the White House, the first skyscraper in the Old World, designed in 1898 by a Dutch architect according to American models in the European Art Nouveau style. Unlike its reinforced concrete overseas prototypes, the Rotterdam Witte Huis (White House) is built of brick and lined with 120,000 glazed tiles.

Saint Petersburg

Despite all the trials the city went through in the 20th century, its historical center has not changed much.

In the Port of Saint Petersburg, from your ship in the Bolshaya Neva channel, you can observe the Peter and Paul Fortress and the Winter Palace, the Stock Exchange building and Rostral columns on the Spit of Vasilyevsky Island, the Admiralty, Saint Isaac's Cathedral, and the Trinity and Palace bridges. Only a few details suggest the period in which the Port was portrayed. For example, the building of the Winter Palace has been painted turquoise since 1947, and the old Exchange Bridge across the Malaya Neva can be seen on the port beam of the ship. These details suggest that this is the city as it was in the 1950s.

New York

In the New York Port, you can find your ship under the famous Brooklyn Bridge on the fairway of the East River.

From here, you can see the skyscrapers of Downtown Manhattan and the buildings of the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood. On the right side of the Captain's ship, the waters of the Hudson glitter; on the left, Manhattan Bridge follows the Brooklyn Bridge. The Port of New York is still the largest in the United States and one of the largest ports in the world. In the early 20th century, it was located in Manhattan's South Street Seaport area. The equally famous Port of Brooklyn, with its continuous row of piers, is situated on the other side of the East River. Behind the bridges, you can see the dry docks and industrial buildings of the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Rio de Janeiro

The first associations that arise at the mention of Rio de Janeiro are Copacabana Beach and the Christ the Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado. From the Port of Rio de Janeiro, you can see this grand Art Deco statue, which appeared in 1931.

But your attention will be first riveted to what lies to the very left of the ship moored in Guanabara Bay: the Rio de Janeiro Naval Arsenal. This is the main base and shipyard of the Brazilian Navy, located in the center of the capital. The entire island complex of buildings and structures of the arsenal you see, along with the largest dry dock in South America, is depicted at the time of its opening in 1930. High-rise buildings surrounded by a mountain amphitheater serve as a magnificent backdrop. Behind the stern, you can notice airliners landing at Santos Dumont Airport.

Vast ocean, far and wide

  Vast ocean, far and wide  

Kronstadt is a famous sea fortress on Kotlin Island in the Gulf of Finland. The events of fall 1941 unfold in the Port, where German troops approached Leningrad, occupied the gulf's southern shore—visible in the distance on the starboard side of the Captain's ship—and subjected the city and Kronstadt naval base to artillery fire and bombardment.

In the Port of Kronstadt, you can see ships of the Soviet Baltic Fleet responding with their main batteries directly from the roadsteads. They are supported by the guns of island forts, visible on the astern side of the gulf. On the port side, you can see the distinctive ordered architecture of the Kronstadt city blocks, the Marine Plant buildings, and the Naval Cathedral dome.


Port Kure, surrounded by the snow-capped mountain ranges of Honshu Island, is located in the bay of the Seto Inland Sea. The main base of the Imperial Japanese Navy was located along the shores of the bay from the end of the 19th century.

In this Port, you can see the extensive facilities of the Kure Naval Arsenal, one of the four largest shipyards in Japan in the first half of the 20th century. Famous battleships Yamato and Nagato, as well as aircraft carriers Akagi and Sōryū, were built here. In addition, steel mills, naval gun factories, shell and gunpowder factories, and design bureaus were also located here. With its tall smoking chimneys, huge industrial buildings, and mighty cranes, Kure was a host to a true forge of the Imperial Japanese Navy's power.


Located on the northeastern coast of the Black Sea, the Port of Novorossiysk is the largest in Russia and one of the largest in Europe. The Port is spread out like an amphitheater along Tsemes Bay, surrounded by the mountains of the North Caucasus.

The area saw fierce battles in 1942 and 1943. Little remains of the city that was built at the end of the 19th century and during the first third of the 20th century. However, from your ship, you can observe the busy cargo port of the 1930s. Along the shore, the piers are equipped with railway tracks, where ship cargo was discharged to wagons, and belt conveyors along overpasses that delivered grain. To the left of the ship are cement plants with a pier to handle the exportation of products.


The Port of Marseille greets you with the azure waves of the Mediterranean Sea and a beautiful view of the old French city of the 1930s.

To the left of the Captain's ship, we can see the Cathedral of Sainte-Marie-Majeure, one of the main attractions of France, as well as the massive walls of the 17th-century Fort Saint-Jean, which covered the entrance to the bay of the Old Port. During World War II, Marseille was severely damaged. However, the fort and the 12th-century Saint Laurent Church to its left have been restored, unlike the 1905 openwork bridge across the bay behind them, which was destroyed and can now only be seen in our Marseille Port.

To new shores

  To new shores  

In the Port of London, you can see the sights of the capital of the British Empire in the 1930s right from the deck of your ship, located on the navigable Thames between Tower Bridge and London Bridge.

Many buildings in the historic center have survived to this day—not only the recognizable towers and walls of the Tower but also the massive building at 10 Trinity Square, built in the Beaux Arts style for the London Port Authority. Along the river is the Customs House with its three colonnades, built in the classicism style of the early 19th century. The quays on the starboard side subsequently changed their appearance. Previously, they were hosts to the Chamberlain and Hay trading piers with port cranes for unloading ships. Now they can only be observed in our London Port.

The Philippines

The Port of the Philippines is a cozy island lagoon with an edge of snow-white beaches at the foot of rocky peaks covered with tropical greenery in the South Seas archipelago.

There is no naval base, shipyard, busy port, or sprawling city here. But the Philippines themselves had it all: Subic Bay, on the island of Luzon, a military port created by the Spanish back in 1885, which became the U.S. largest foreign naval base in the second half of the 20th century, and Manila, the capital city, which is the world's crossroads of sea trade routes since the 16th century. Our Port welcomes you with a picturesque sunny town in the unique style of those places—a mixture of European and Asian motifs. On the hill, you can see a Catholic church; on the square, a stele in honor of the struggle for independence; at the pier, yachts swaying... Here, in this tropical paradise, any warship looks peaceful.


In the Fjords Port, even the largest ship is lost against a background of towering giant mountains with snow-capped peaks even in summer rising from all sides. Waterfalls tumbling into the calm expanse of the Scandinavian fjord and haze above the picturesque rocky slopes reflected in the water serve as a foil to the stark beauty of northern nature.

Just imagine: This winding sea bay cuts into the land for a hundred kilometers and runs a kilometer deep, like the largest European Sognefjord. Artificial technology does not seem entirely appropriate in these conservation areas. However, sailing boats and small steamboats cruising around the Captain's ship, lighthouses nestled on the capes, and a scattering of brightly painted fishermen's stilt houses along the shores make the landscape cozy.


The first thing that catches one's eye in the Taranto Port is the majestic palazzo, located on the very shore of Mar Grande, a vast bay in the Gulf of Taranto of the Ionian Sea. At first glance, the palace seems to be the same age as Leonardo da Vinci, but in fact, it was built in 1934 specifically for the city administration of Taranto, the main base of the Italian Navy.

The city is squeezed into a long peninsula separating Mar Grande and Mar Piccolo, the inner harbor, which can be entered through a narrow canal. The mighty Castello Aragonese guarded it at the end of the 15th century, and the famous Ponte Girevole swing bridge built in 1887 across the canal can open to allow for the passage of ships.
