Visit one of Volgograd’s world famous sights related to the World War II. This museum consists of an artistic panoramic canvas «The Defeat of Fascist Forces at Stalingrad», which is the largest painted panorama in Russia (measures 16x120 meters), and the Museum of Stalingrad Battle with 8 exhibition halls containing more than 3,500 exhibits, 4 dioramas (5x25 meters each), a unique portrait gallery of Soviet military leaders and commanders involved in the Stalingrad battle. The Museum stores an extraordinary collection of weapons, military equipment, documents, photographs, banners, and works of art.
Next to the museum building you will see another striking evidence of the horrors of war – the ruins of a mill. This five storey building was left for the generations to come as a gruesome reminder of what had happened in Stalingrad back in 1942.
You will also see the Pavlov’s House mentioned in German military maps as an unconquered fortress. The building has been under siege for 58 days, but the brave defenders never gave up.
