The Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 is situated in the very center of the Victory Park. The memorial section of the Museum is the Hall of Glory where there are marble slabs engraved with the names of 11,717 participants of the war awarded the honorary title "Hero of the Soviet Union".
Around the Hall of Memory there are six dioramas depicting the biggest battles fought during the war; "The Counteroffensive of the Soviet Troops Near Moscow in December 1941", "The Joining of Fronts, Stalingrad", "The Siege of Leningrad", "The Battle of Kursk Bulge", "The Crossing of the Dnieper, 1943", and "The Storming of Berlin". The dioramas, executed by masters from the Grekov Studio of Battle Painting, cover a floor area of 1,500
square meters. People interested in the World War Two in the east front should find a visit to the museum very worthwhile.
