Battlefields of Glory. Stalingrad.

From: Moscow To: Volgograd Theme: Heritage Grade: Easy Season: June-August Destination: Stalingrad Rate from 1790 USD

Russia played a major role in defeating the Nazis during WWII. You won’t find a family in Russia that wasn’t affected by humanity's greatest war. The Battle of Moscow, the Siege of Leningrad, the Battle of Stalingrad—the bloodiest in history—-...the echoes of all the grand battles are here, in Russia, where Hitler was first stopped and then defeated. But at a heavy cost; over thirty million lives were lost. Now, seventy years later, we can follow the famous paths, and imagine how it felt here when hell was unleashed on ordinary people. Now we can pay our tribute and honor those who fell.
