Moscow is one of Russia's main tourist destinations, which is visited by many tourists throughout the year. Among the millions of tourists who visit Moscow during their travel to Russia, many use the programs provided by travel agencies and Russia tour operators. Moscow has many tourist attractions that you should spend more time visiting Moscow than what the travel agencies have planned to see all of them. Of course, travel agencies and tour operators in Russia also arrange the best possible program for their tourists, including visiting most of Moscow's main tourist attractions. Among these tourist attractions, we can mention Red Square, which is one of the main tourist attractions of the Russia tour in Moscow. The historical place has housed several other major tourist attractions, each of which can be an essential part of a Moscow tour for visitors. Among these tourist attractions, we can mention the Kremlin, which is the most important historical landmark in Moscow and receives millions of tourists annually. One of the main advantages of the Moscow tour may be gathering most of the main tourist attractions in the city center, where tourists can use most of the Moscow tour entertainment programs and visit the top tourist attractions of the city without having to travel long distances. Of course, even a short distance from the city center, you can still find many important tourist attractions, each of which can become a significant part of the Moscow tour for you. One of these tourist attractions may be the Victory Museum or the Museum of the Great Patriotic War. A museum that anyone interested in learning about the history of World War II or those interested in war machines and military vehicles should not miss the opportunity to visit during their trip to Moscow.
The first advantage of visiting the Museum of the Great Patriotic War is undoubtedly the large space of Victory Park. Victory Park is located on Poklonnaya Hill, which was once the highest point in Moscow. This hill also has a fascinating history, and many historical events have taken place on this hill. One of the most important historical events related to this hill dates back to Napoleon's Moscow invasion. After besieging half of Moscow, Napoleon waited to receive the keys to the Kremlin doors on this hill, which never happened. Of course, this is not the only historical event related to this hill. Visitors to this park can learn about the rest of the historical events related to Poklonnaya Hill while visiting Russia by visiting the Victory Museum during their tour to Moscow program. The park's large and green space provides a suitable environment for tourists to walk in an enjoyable environment during their travel to Moscow. Plus, due to this hill's height, you can usually see beautiful views of Moscow on it. Victory Park is also considered one of the best places to see military vehicles and war machines on the Moscow tour. It hosts an open-air museum of war machines and military hardware, part of The Museum of the Great Patriotic War.
The open-air museum of war machines and military hardware, which has been set up in the Victory Park, is one of the most complete collections of this museum's style in the world. If you think that if you visit this museum during your travel to Moscow, you will only see tanks and some military vehicles, you are sorely mistaken. This open-air museum contains several of the war machines used in World War II, and seeing each one up close can create a great memory for a trip to Russia for those who love military war machines. In addition to tanks and combat vehicles, visitors to the museum can see the military airplanes used in World War II, including several Japanese captured aircraft, one of the museum's attractions. Warships are also on display at the museum, which can be very interesting. Among other war machines, we can mention some examples of submarines that amaze visitors to the museum. Visitors can also see several remnants of Nazi German aircraft and other items captured during World War II. This open-air museum is unique in its kind of military equipment and war machines, and we at Star Travel Group recommend it to all tourists interested in this museum style. Of course, this open-air museum is not only a tourist attraction of Victory Park, but there is also an extraordinary indoor museum with the theme of World War II, and the Great Patriotic War locates in Victory Park, which can be of great interest to tourists of Russia tour.
The indoor section of The Museum of the Great Patriotic War is one of the best places to get to know the painful period of World War II and the Great Patriotic War for both Soviet soldiers and Soviet citizens. Of course, tourists can also get an overview of World War II's tragedy in this museum, but most of the museum's focus is on the damage suffered by Soviet citizens and the suffering that mothers of this land went through during the war. Of course, getting to know the history of World War II and visiting the personal belongings of Soviet soldiers, commanders, and citizens during World War II is encouraging enough.
