    An exquisite site containing a number of monuments to the 900 day siege of Leningrad during WWII. Educational and emotional. A must for any visitor to understand the cost of war.  more »

  • The Monument to Heroic Defenders of Leningrad honours the victims that died during the Siege of Leningrad. The atmosphere of this site is haunting and brings the horrors of the Second World War to life. The monument itself is majestically designed. The tour through the museum underneath the monument is very informative.
  • Take your time at least to admire the big sculpture in honor of Leningrad heroes, then with more time go into the historical details.
  • Interesting place to visit. Beautiful statues.
  • Visit the Leningrad Siege Museum inside the monument.
