Description

The Siege of Leningrad tour offers you a unique opportunity to go beyond the standard tour and visit the battlefields and memorial sites of the most dramatic siege of the Second World War. The tour starts by driving to the Road of Life — the only city supporting route with the stops at memorials. You will see the Flower of Life, Baltic Wings, Memorial Mountain, Broken Ring and some others (the piece of authentic road is among them but not seen well under the snow). The Road of Life museum displays wartime relics telling of the heroic feat of the truck drivers. Next to the museum, there is an exhibition of military and transport vehicles complete with a Soviet-made C-47 airplane that delivered food supplies to the starving. Nevsky Bridgehead, nicknamed 'pyatachok' or five kopeck coin, is a tiny patch of land that became a common grave for almost 50, 000 Soviet soldiers. Making it one of the bloodiest battlefields in the world. Finally, we will visit the Diorama Museum located in the same place where the German fortifications were successfully stormed by the Soviet infantry.  The tour is a must-take for all history fans. It is entertaining and very educative so we highly recommend it for children. Update progress
