“Slice of Soviet history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

This was an interesting site because it had a good taste of some classically Soviet monuments and architecture. It also told much of the history of the eastern happenings of WWII, which my high school history books glossed over.

“Great war museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

This war museum is definetely one of the best. The outdoors part with various military vehicles is exciting, but the indoor exposition is must see. It constitutes of three floors with many halls, each representing separate periods in chronological order - showing peaceful pre-war years, key periods and battles of WWII eastern front, terrors of nazi occupation and triumph of victory. The museum brings loads of emotions - shock, sorrow, pride, joy.. The most breathtaking part is hall of remembrance - its just worth to see. Hovewer, the final floor - the hall of fame full of sinlight, leaves all negative and gloomy emotions behind, filling you with pride for people, survived that hell and brought peace to their homes.
