The Victory Train, an immersive museum of the Great Patriotic War consisting of eight railcars, each containing an exhibition dedicated to a certain period or topic, has arrived to St. Petersburg.
St. Petersburg Governor Alexander Beglov noted that the unique historical museum keeps the memory of those who defended the country during the war, a spokesperson for the city government told Saint-Petersburg TV Channel.
Such projects as the Victory Train help people feel the atmosphere of those far-off years and see the war the way its contemporaries saw it, he added.
In the eight cars of the train, visitors can see the peaceful life just before the start of the war, the life in the besieged Leningrad, and important events of the Great Patriotic War.
The museum train will be traveling for 36 days stopping in 13 cities. It will stay in St. Petersburg till October 27.
