What you can expect

The tour “Hero-city Volgograd” will take you to the most memorable sights devoted to the World War II.

Your personal tour guide will help you to build up a complete picture of the events that took place in the city during the war and your personal driver will help you to enjoy this day even more.

During the tour, you will see Mamayev Kurgan famous for its memorial complex and a striking in its size statue of the Motherland. Many architects call the statue the symbol of freedom. Except for this Mamayev Kurgan has become a burial place for more than 35,000 defenders of Stalingrad.

The next stop is the Square of Fallen Fighters that has become a place of fierce fights in 1942-1943 and is a witness of the victory of the Battle of Stalingrad when 23 German generals and a generalfeldmarschall Paulus were captured only few steps away from the square. Here you will also see the Eternal Flame, the tree survived the battle, memorial of 3 heroes of the Battle of Stalingrad as a symbol of courage and loyalty.

Having enjoyed all the views and histories about this place, you will then visit the Central Embankment of 62nd Army extending from Mamayev Kurgan to the Central River Port. From here you will be able to get to the Square of Vladimir Lenin, the founder of the Russian communist party, and to see the memorial.

One more site is a 4-storey apartment building in the centre of Volgograd. In this building a group of Soviet defenders under the command of senior sergeant Y.F. Pavlov and Senior Lieutenant I.F. Afanasyev were under siege for a period of 58 days. Next to this building, there was one more which was also under siege but was destroyed. Today this place is known as Pavlov's House.

Also during the tour you will visit the Alley of Heroes, zero kilometre where all Volgograd roads start, post number one, ruins of the mill, Mira street - the symbol of a reborn city, All Saints Church that was opened in the year of 60th anniversary of Victory in Great Patriotic War.

The tour will finish as soon as the guide and the driver will accompany you to your hotel.
