As World War II advanced to the east, Stalin’s engineers created a fortified region of artillery positions in 1928, prepared with machine guns and heavier weapons. However, technology developed drastically and those objects, now left in the woods, were not yet prepared for the new tanks and their destructive capacity.

You will visit the remains of those pillboxes, some re-built to present the conditions, in which those soviet heroes fought and succumbed to the Barbarosa operation organized by Hitler to conquer all the soviet territories from Poland to Moscow. Some of the bunkers are abandoned, making you go through the woods, stepping on wet grounds, bringing your lantern as a guide.
We get a visit to a bunker converted into a museum with original artifacts collected around, like helmets, grenades, bullet shells, magazines, notes and more.
As an option, you can decide to be dropped off by the World War II Memorial Park and the motherland statue, one of the biggest in the world.
Prices are per person, includes transportation and guiding. To enter some of the bunkers we might get wet and will be dark, so we provide torches and a leg protection.
