At the time of writing (October 2014) the Flour Mill is surrounded by a wall and some sort of construction work is going on. It can be seen from the road, but not well. Sadly, it doesn't seem to have occurred to whoever is managing these works to build a viewing platform for visitors to have a good look at... More

This brings to life after so many years how difficult the battle for Stalingrad must have been for both sides.

Surrounded by a marble redevelopment we couldn't get anywhere near. The preserved (not working) steam train and small line up of tanks and guns was interesting.

This house is one of the reminders left after the dreadful siege of Staliningrad. I thought it's amazing what human persistence can do as I walked around Volgograd and seeing all of the buildings that have been repaired or rebuilt. Only museums, some warfare and memorial monuments are the remainders of city's dark past, the buildings seem oddly unconcerned. Apart... More

You can only see the building from the outside and at a distance -- but if you are interested in the history of the Battle this is a must see. All the bullet and shell holes are genuine and if you close your eyes you can almost smell and hear the sounds of very fierce fighting which lasted for months.... More

Another must see for history buffs. You are probably coming to this city after stopping over in Moscow. This city is an absolute must for anyone traveling into Russia. Incredible and unforgettable monuments to Russian history. Attention history buffs, two cities to see before you die are Volgograd and Moscow. You'll never be the same.

This place is one of the most important places to visit in Volgograd. This building was bombed, but survived the war. It is a living example of how destructive the war is. Near this place there is also the panorama museum dedicated to the war.
