Visit as part of the panoramic museum visit. Must see. Just imagine how the city must have looked around this building. A life we could not even imagine. Not one step back.

This is the only building that stands just as it was left after the war. It's really moving, it certainly gives you an idea of how the city looked after the terrible battle of Stalingrad. At its foot stands the original round of kids that is a symbol of the city. A must, of course. Very sad, very emotional. What... More

Only building in Stalingrad to be maintained as it was following siege of Stalingrad. Only viewable from the street in front or from the Volga River.

Left standing as an image of the former Stalingrad. The grounds were not open to the public, but easy photos from street level. The statue of the children dancing around the crocodile is in the foreground.

This is really part of the Panorama museum rather a stand alone attraction. Plus you can only see it from a bit of a distance rather experience it from up close. One could imagine setting up a part of the building as a small museum of how it might have looked like inside. For children in particular this would make... More

Probably the only chance to see what a small part of Volgograd looked like after the great battle. This eerie building from an age long gone is surrounded by modern architecture and this helps to make it standout even more. Stunning to see and touch. The mass of bullet holes and bomb damage is shocking.
