Owner description: The Historical and Cultural Complex “Stalin line” is 26 km from the Minsk and 6 km from Zaslavl town. The Historical and Cultural Complex “Stalin line” was founded on 60-th anniversary of soviet people Victory in the Great Patriotic war (IIWW) and it was opened on the 30th of June 2005 in memory of soldures who defend Minsk in 1941. Main museum exposition is related to first days of the Great Patriotic war. “Stalin line” is the chain of defensive installations along the former USSR frontier from Karelian Isthmus to the shores of Black sea. It consisted of twenty three fortified regions including more than four thousand permanent weapon emplacements (pillboxes). All are made from high quality fortification concrete. Four fortified regions – Polotsk, Minsk, Slutsk, Mozyr – were at territory of Belarus in total nine hundred sixty-six pillboxes. Fortified regions formed a united defense line. The entire line of the fortified regions had been built since 1928 till the autumn 1939. Minsk’s fortified region No 63, which was 140 kilometers long included 327 pillboxes. On 26-28th of June 1941 at the lines of the Minsk`s fortified region there was fierce fighting with the attacking units of the German army. The Military-museum exposition was created and planed, so that from first steps a visitor could feel spirit of that time. The opportunity to be absorbed in history is one of the distinctive features of the museum. The basis of the exposition is original pillboxes. All entrenchments and communication trenches with rifle-pits for machine-guns and with blindages and recesses for ammunition were reconstructed according to the year 1940 designs. There is a park of military equipment of different years in the museum. It is the most complete exposition of military equipment in the Republic of Belarus, which was adopted by USSR army in different years, beginning from the Second World War. The museum territory is organized for reenactments of IIWW and modern fights which are planed like special events and happen approximately 10-14 times a year.

“Excellent military museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

If you have an interest in Soviet-era militaria, then this is the place for you. It is mainly devoted to the ground forces of the Red Army, from the Second World War to the Cold War, but there are also a small number of Soviet aircraft. The reconstructed fortifications are fun and interesting, with detailed re-creations of communications and defensive bunkers, figting trenches, and some interesting turrets adapted from early light tanks. There is a restaraunt and cafe (we ate here.... mostly serves blinchke and drinks, but the food is good. You can also fire a Soviet Mosin rifle, ride a quad, and even ride an APC. I'll definately be returning this summer.

“Stalin Line - a compliment to the Red Army”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

A vast open-air museum located 34 km away from Minsk offering several exhibition pads with Soviet military equipment dated from WWII till 1990s. The main emphasis is put on 2 restored concrete pillboxes that in the 1930s made the so-called Stalin Line - a defense line that ran from the Baltic to the Black Sea. The bunkers are stuffed with guns and everything.
Apart from exhibits themselves the complex offers tank rides - ordered that one a year ago (genuine wow effect=) - and a shooting range. At the latter you can try out AKs and German guns of the 20th century. A nice place to spend a few hours with kids and take some really decent pictures.
