  • A typical WWII Museum. For greater penetration need a guide. Enjoyed the audio guide (price 100 USD)-special fun didn't get a little weak. The main attraction is the diorama. She is impressive.

  • Very nice spacious Museum. Us as guests of the city doubly lucky: to visit the Museum with the kids, hurry feared that festive day will close before and got the extended session! Underestimated. The festive day of the Museum's work extended and made free visits. Exposition gorgeous! Panorama of chic. The Museum is very much, is required to visit! Took part in the rally and won the kids gifts! Cool!

  • Today visited the Museum-Panorama. The Museum is very interesting. Especially interesting are the original stuff. So are various awards and stuff. All-round panorama of itself interesting. Turns out some presence effect in action. We advise you to visit. Nearby is the famous mill.
