Open air museum in a pleasant environment. To have close look at the war equipment (cars, tanks and planes) you have to pay a small fee.

This is in the same park as the cave monastery. A long walk from one end to the other but the World War II Museum (Great Patriotic) is important because the Russians built it and it reflects their point of view: They won the war...More

Biz bu geziye turla gittik.Dolayısıyla bütün ulaşımı şirket ayarladı.Ama çok ulaşılamayacak bir yerde olduğunu sanmıyorum.Zaten toplu taşıma yerine taksiye binilse bile çok pahalı olmayacaktır.
