NINA & PINTA
IN PITTSBURGH
ALL THINGS PITTSBURGH
It may feel like you had stepped back in time if you were near the rivers in Downtown Pittsburgh in October, 2015.
Replicas of Christopher Columbus’ Nina and Pinta sailed into Pittsburgh around 6:00 P.M.
The ships were docked at Station Square from October 1st to October 13th.
The Nina was built by hand, without the use of power tools and is considered to be the most historically correct
Columbus replica ship ever built.
Both ships tour together as a “sailing museum” to educate the public and school children about the early explorers.
The boats drew large crowds when they were docked here in 2009 and 2012.

Columbus’ Other Ship Was the Santa Maria, So Where Is It?
“She’s a much larger ship than these two and he she would need twice as much water to travel around.
Would need about 14 feet where the Nina and Pinta only need 7 feet,” Captain Sanger said.
