Individual and Group tours of Moscow and Environs


Almost 70 years have passed since the end of the Great Patriotic War. This war became one of the most important phenomena in our country’s history. My grandmother didn’t go up the line but was evacuated to the Urals and worked at a factory. Every family remembers that time and thinks about its heroes. The heroic actions of the Soviet people remain in next generations’ memory for centuries. We are living  peacefully only due to them.
