I would also draw your attention to the Russian vessel Shtandart (www.shtandart.com), which I visited in Kristiansand. Very hospitable!
Not an exact replica, of course, as current maritime regulations insist on an engine, amongst other features, but general construction and rigging are thought to be as accurate as possible.
She regularly sails around the Baltic, usually with young crews, but is not a ‘training ship’ in the traditional sense.

Editor’s note:
The Shtandart is a replica of Peter the Great flagship, Imperial Russia’s first home-built square-rigged warship, launched in 1703.
