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 Nazi army. Some of the bunkers are abandoned, making you go through the woods, stepping on wet grounds, bringing your lantern as a guide. Others are made into a museum with pieces collected around, like helmets, grenades, bullet shells and more.

As an option, you can decide to be dropped off by the World War II Memorial Park and Rodina Mat, the motherland statue, one of the biggest in the world.
