Description

In 1941-1944 the city survived the most destructive siege in the history of human warfare. More than 800 000 citizens lost their lives to starvation, cold, artillery shelling and air raids. The Siege of Leningrad tour offers you a unique opportunity to go beyond the city's tourist facades and visit the battlefields and memorial sites of the most dramatic siege of the WWII.

The tour's itinerary features the monuments built along the Road of Life - the only supply route to starving Leningrad, the Nevsky Bridgehead - one of the bloodiest battlefields of the Second World War, and two museums - the Road of Life museum and the Siege of Leningrad Breakthrough diorama. You will also see the Broken Ring memorial on the coast of the Ladoga Lake, and the Oreshek island fortress (tour of the Oreshek fortress can be included as an add-on) that was heroically defended by the Soviet troops throughout the whole Siege.
The Siege of Leningrad tour is available only as a private tour and subject to further confirmation.
Possible additions to the itinerary: the Siege museum in Saint Petersburg, the Oreshek fortress, German war cemetery at Sologubovka, Piskarevskoye Cemetery (the principle Siege memorial of the city).
