900 days inside and outside the besieged city with a private guide
Visit the places which had witnessed the harassing siege of Leningrad during the Second World War. It was one of 3 humanitarian catastrophies in the Mankind Warfare history (destruction of Jews and Armenians are among them) with still unknown number of victims. We are going to visit some of the memorial sites (Flower of Life with the pages from the diary of worldly-famous Tanya Savicheva, piece of authentic road, the Baltic Wings, the Broken Ring on the shore of Ladoga Lake etc. ) located along the Road of Life - the only city supporting route to starving Leningrad through the Ladoga Lake connected the besieged city with the rest of Soviet Union, the Road of Life Museum with the considerable collection of weapon, relics and Diorama reviving the events of the final breakthrough operation of 1943. Also we would be attending the infernal place, Nevsky Bridgehead, where the duration of a warrier's life didn't exceed 1 day only.
During the tour we will be getting the lunch in the provincial town Kirovsk.
