  • Visited with his family in August 2014. View in Volgograd. celenapoavlenno one day, stayed in the city to visit all attractions. My grandfather died in WWII, and I cherish his memory. With my wife and children visited the Museum. Very good composition. Much useful information. Thanks to all who created and runs this. We must remember and know our history.
