As world cup supporters are finding out, the Russian people are great! They stood with us at great cost when our allies had fallen and America was still refusing to join the war effort. This is a very moving museum commenorating the siege of Leningrad...More

Earlier reviews and blogs mention that there is limited, if no English at this museum. This isn't true. The audio guide was very comprehensive and there's plenty of English text explaining what went on. Gave me a good understanding of what the people of the...More

A sobering and informative place. The audio guide makes up for the lack of English signage. Beware, however, the privately paid tour guides- they act like they own the place and rudely expect you to move aside so "their" group can get a better view....More

I think it is difficult to understand the history of the city of Leningrad (St. Petersburg), without engaging with the terrible siege that this city had to endure. As the almost three years long siege resulted in 800,000 dead people, mainly from starvation, rather than...More

This museum is very interesting since it collects many original memorabilia, posters, guns, ration books from the 1941-43 Leningrad siege. Unfortunately, almost every explanations and panels in the museum are....in Russian and so it is very difficult to understand what is exhibited. Only few panels...More

This small museum is dedicated to what has undoubtedly been the most traumatic period in the history of this historic city. The siege of Leningrad lasted from September 8th, 1941 to January 27th, 1944 (872 days) and resulted in the death of more than a...More
