Buckle in Russia's Red Belt
Volgograd Oblast remains best known for its eponymous unofficial capital, the site of one of the longest and bloodiest battles of World War II. A massive memorial complex dedicated to the heroes of this historic battle serves as the region's biggest attraction, located on a prominent hill overlooking the city. The memorial notably features one of the tallest sculptures in the world, a giant female figure with a raised sword over her head. Beyond the city of Volgograd the region offers little in the way of developed tourist attractions and remains largely agricultural, with sprawling industrial areas along the Don and Volga rivers. Volgograd Oblast is in Southern District.
