ST. PETERSBURG MUSEUMS - WORLD WAR II AND THE SIEGE

This city saw some of the most dramatic moments of World War II. From September 1941 to January 1944 Leningrad was besieged by Nazi army, which tried to starve the city into submission. Yet, the defenders of Leningrad did not surrender despite hunger and cold, shelling and bombing. Even now we continue to be proud of the fact that enemy armies never marched the streets of St. Petersburg. Several museums tell the impressive story of the Siege of Leningrad:
  • Leningrad During the War and Siege Years, branch of St Petersburg’s City History Museum
  • Monument to the Heroic Defenders of Leningrad
  • Piskariovskoye Memorial Cemetery Museum of the Siege of Leningrad
  • Siege of Leningrad Museum
