“Nobody is forgotten, nothing is forgotten” is a motto that was used in respect to the heroic behavior of Soviet soldiers during the Great Patriotic War (the part of World War II).
This year whole Russia has been preparing to the great celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Second World War Victory. Saint-Petersburg is not the last to take part in this preparation activities.
Thanks to the fortitude and courage of not only soldiers but also the city residents during Leningrad Siege Hitler’s troops never entered the city. Almost half of the population of Leningrad (the Soviet name of Saint-Petersburg) died here under the bombardments and of starvation, but they didn’t give up. In their memory and the siege of Leningrad a lot of monuments and museums were opened in the city later.
The monument to the Heroic Defenders of Leningrad, the Museum of the Siege and Defense of Leningrad, the Road of Life Museum and others will tell you about the hardest time of our city ever.
We are happy to arrange guided tours to any museums mentioned above.
