Volgograd is the site of one of the best-known battles of WWII (back when the city was known as Stalingrad), and where the Germans were eventually turned back permanently. Aside from the war's rich legacy, the city has a lovely waterfront and other attractions.
Get a feel for the legacy of the war history by touring the important sites. There is a huge victory monument and memorial to those who died, Mamaev Kurgan is a sculpture of Mother Russia holding a sword high in the air. Rossoshka Memorial Cemetery is the impressive resting place of thousands of Soviet soldiers, Germans and Romanians, and there are also several important museums related to the war and its history such as the Panorama Museum of the Battle of Stalingrad. The Volga-Don Canal is an impressive water gateway to the White and Black seas and is worth a visit for the museum and the impressive neo classical arch which marks its entrance. Aside from the historical aspects, the city has pretty boulevards, city squares, and plenty of shops, bars, restaurants, and entertainment.
People tend to stay in the areas closest to the city center with its historic sites within easy distance by foot.
Visit between May and September to avoid the freezing winter months.
