  • We remember our heroes. But to visit the mother-in-law places, which are imbued with the spirit of the time - priceless. Powerful energy!!!

  • The most powerful structure, which gives an idea of the construction of fortifications. There are not many exhibits. It's going to be hard with a pram. You can watch it once.
