The other city of Stalingrad (the modern name Volgograd) protected southern boundaries of Soviet Union and is known for Stalingrad Battle, which was one of the bloodiest battle of the Second World War. The Fascist Troops suffered a devastating defeat in the battle of Stalingrad. There are several museums in Volgograd which devoted to Stalingrad Battle and we will visit most interesting of them, such as Mamaev Kurgan, Museum of Stalingrad Panorama, Soldiers’ Field, Collective Memorial Cemetery in Rossoshka village and others.
The “Hero City” Leningrad (the modern name St.-Petersburg) became a synonym of courage and heroism. Leningrad’s horrific siege was one of the most lethal in world history. It lasted for 900 days, from September 1941 to January 1944. The city’s civilian population of almost three million refused to surrender, even though they were completely surrounded. By the first winter of the siege there was no heating, no water supply, almost no electricity and very little food. Despite non-stop air and artillery bombardment, the city’s greatest enemies were hunger and bitter cold. Exhausted people collapsed and died. The streets were littered with dead bodies. The only life-line to the mainland was the ice of Lake Ladoga – known as the “Road of Life”. “Road of life” saved thousands human lives, we will visit Ladoga Lake. During tour in St. Petersburg we also will visit the Peter and Paul Fortress, Aurora Cruiser, the Artillery Museum, Marino Diorama and State Memorial Museum of Leningrad Siege and Defense.
This historic tour devoted to the 70 anniversaries of the Second World War ending will be interesting to Veterans of the World War II, descendants of participants of the war and to all who sure that we have to remember our history in order to not repeat the mistakes of the past.
