Must-visit place in Volgograd and even Russia. The museum and the statue and the memorials all recall us about the bloodliest and most heroic resistance in modern history!

The whole monument is absolutely STUNNING... It is THE art piece to see if you are travelling to the Russian Federation. The goose bumps will cover your skin when you see her glory and power.
