Full description
The Siege of Leningrad tour offers you a unique opportunity to go beyond the standard tour and visit the battlefields and memorial sites of the most dramatic siege of the Second World War. The tour starts by driving to the Road of Life — the only city supporting route with the stops at memorials. You will see the Flower of Life, Baltic Wings, Memorial Mountain, Broken Ring and some others (the piece of authentic road is among them but not seen well under the snow). The Road of Life museum displays wartime relics telling of the heroic feat of the truck drivers. Next to the museum, there is an exhibition of military and transport vehicles complete with a Soviet-made C-47 airplane that delivered food supplies to the starving. Nevsky Bridgehead, nicknamed 'pyatachok' or five kopeck coin, is a tiny patch of land that became a common grave for almost 50, 000 Soviet soldiers. Making it one of the bloodiest battlefields in the world. Finally, we will visit the Diorama Museum located in the same place where the German fortifications were successfully stormed by the Soviet infantry.  The tour is a must-take for all history fans. It is entertaining and very educative so we highly recommend it for children. Update progress

very very good

excellent day, the guide was brilliant and gave us a great history lesson as we followed the road of life and stopped at many places along the way, visiting the diorama and the bridgehead, saw so much and learnt a lot about the hardships that were endured over the period . if you have the time do it as its well worth the time and money

Amazing trip. Want to book again in summer

This trip was amazing and a highlight for me. I'm a history graduate but until you drive out to Lake Ladoga, you have no idea the environment those poor people were dealing with. The memorials along the way are beautiful and the museums are so well done. Extreme attention to detail, which is a fitting tribute. In the Diorama museum it gets plunged into darkness and all hell breaks loose around you. WW2 at night. Extremely horrifying and I'm happy to admit I'm the snowflake generation. Have recommended this trip to my Dad and will book again for myself in summer, to compare the landscape. I also did Pavlovsk with this company and meant to book Gatchina for this week, but I forgot. Highly, highly recommend this trip over any other thing you do in St Petersburg
