Revolution, WWII, siege
This memorial is dedicated to the 900-days unprecedented heroic defence of the city in the World War II,1941-1945. Consistsof an obelisk, sculptural composition, and an underground Memorial Hall, where original documents and items of that time are displayed.
The Museum of the political History of Russia
The museum features original objects, documents, photographs on the history of Russia in the XIX-XX centuries. There is an exact locality, where Revolution and Red October took place. It is a prima-ballerina’s mansion, which preserved for us a unique scent of the time which got the name “the epoch of great shocks”. Here you can find a collection of revolutionary banners, an extremely valuable gathering of leaflets of different political parties, posters, and objects of that time.
The Blockade Museum
The museum shows a famine ravaged Leningrad and the heroic efforts by citizens to somehow get food in from beyond the blockade across the frozen “Road of Life” over Lake Ladoga.
