Volgograd, formerly called Stalingrad is located in the south-western part of Russia, on the banks of the Volga River.
In southern Russia, Volgograd is fast developing in historical tourism due to its long tradition. Recognised as Stalingrad in the Soviet era, the city has now become a key industrial location for a million people. The city was also the stage for the Battle of Stalingrad during the Second World War, and hence, is also celebrated as “Hero City”.
Mamayev Kurgan was one of the deadliest battle spots during World War II and for that reason is now a very famous memorial site for tourists visiting Volgograd. The Panorama Museum is also famed for the great Battle of Stalingrad – the remnants of which are a silent memorial to the battle and heroic history of Volgograd. The silhouette of the Motherland sculpture is an important sign of Volgograd.
