MAY, JULY trip 2017.

WW2 battlefield tour is a unique opportunity to see the main battlefields in the eastern front of the Second World war. The tour covers all main battle sights including Moscow, Stalingrad and Kursk Buldge with Ponyri, Olkhovatka, Teplov Hights and Prokhorovka. We visit main museums dedicated to the Great Patriotic war in Moscow together with some sights which require special permits like Kubinka tank and Monino military aviation museums. Another highlight is the city of Stalingrad which is a museum under open air by itself where combat took place through out the city. Our city visits include Mamaev Kurgan (Mamaev Hill) with enormous monument of Mother Russia, Ludnikov's island, Factory district, Grain Elevator. Upon arrival to Kursk you have a unique opportunity to see the northern salient of the battle with key points of German offensive at Poniry, Olkhovatka and last point of Russian defense at Teplov Hights. These battle sights were called "the Stalingrad of Kursk battle" by german soldiers but nowadays these battle sights are almost never visited even by specialized groups. The second day during Kursk battle visit will be given to the southern bulge with the biggest tank battle at Prokhorovka. The tour is a wonderful opportunity to learn incredible details of main battles of Stalingrad, Kursk and Moscow that took place during Great Patriotic war, ask questions and discuss the course and controversy of the fighting together with other participants of the group interested in military history.

WINTER TRIP IN JANUARY 2017.
Main German assaults on to the Soviet Union took place in summers of 1941 and 1942. German's leader was so confident that the Soviet Union will fall like a giant on clay legs if it is pushed hard enough that he forbid his generals even mention any possibility of fighting during winter time. Overconfidence of German troops and underestimation of the Red Army led Wehrmacht to disasters during winter campaigns at Moscow and Stalingrad. One can read and hear about Russian winter many times but it is not possible to comprehend the conditions until one experiences it in person. This trip is put together to give you a chance of taking a glimpse of Soviet and German soldiers experience of the period. We also invite you to celebrate the New Year on the Red Square.

PATRIOTIC WAR OF 1812 TOUR. NAPOLEONIC INVASION
Russia experienced two patriotic wars in its history. They are called patriotic because the whole country and the whole nation was involved in the combat. Napoleon in 1812 and Wehrmacht in 1941 launched their offensives putting Russia at the edge of its existence. It took the entire country to stand up and fight to defend its independence. Russian people had to go through bitter defeats and terrible losses, through huge casualties and personal tragedies to temper the spirit and banish invaders out of the country. The tour is designed to give you an opportunity to learn more about both wars and visit the sight of the most decisive WWII battle in Stalingrad. The highlights of the trip are re-enactment at Borodino and possible re-enactment at Kubinka Tank museum.
