Preparing your trip to Volgograd: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Volgograd 1. For tourists who expect to visit Volgograd in the summer, it is best to refuse trips in the first half of June. Traditionally during this period there is a peak of activity of mosquitoes and midges, which makes staying in the open air simply impossible. This feature should be taken into account also by motorists; machines suffer from midges no less than people.
2. The city's structure is such that traffic jams on its central highway are almost constant. The strongest congestion on the roads happens between 7:00 and 9:00 and from 17:00 to 21:00. At this time, it is best to refuse trips on the Second longitudinal highway.
3. Public transport is represented by a ramified network of trams, trolleybuses, buses and shuttles, so it is easy to get to the region of interest. It is also worth noting that all areas of the city are connected by a line of electric trains; they will be the best option for long trips.
4. For travelers who are accustomed to using taxi services, it is best to call the car on the phone; in this case, you can save a lot. But, it is worth remembering that Volgograd taxi drivers are extremely reluctant to respond to calls that involve a short trip.
5. Most of the popular hotels are concentrated in the Central District of Volgograd; they are located in proximity to important cultural and entertainment centers. Those who want to save on accommodation as much as possible should pay attention to small hotels located in the neighboring Dzerzhinsky district. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. In addition to the delicious honey in Volgograd, you can get great knitted things from natural goat and sheep wool. Buy them best in the market; to find traders with these common products will not be difficult. They offer sweaters, scarves, socks and mittens for both children and adults.
7. Fans of cycling should note that there are no special bike paths (and sometimes pavements) in the city, so you can skate comfortably and without fear only through the territory of city parks.
Monuments of the Battle of Stalingrad make up the bulk of most excursion programs. A landmark of world importance is Mamayev Kurgan - an incredibly beautiful and large-scale memorial, which … Open
8. Summer in Volgograd is always very sultry, so at this time of year lovers of excursions and walk tours will be uncomfortable. The hot sun will please the fans of beach rest. In the daytime the temperature of the air can warm up to + 35 degrees Celsius, and the water temperature on the city beaches, respectively, to + 25.

Motherland Calls Sculpture

From the series “The Most Grandiose Statues and Monuments”
The author of the monument is the greatest sculptor, Evgeny Vucetich. It took 8 years to erect the sculpture. Nikolai Nikitin was the structural engineer of the project. He managed to pick up the scale so the complex design structure wasn't destroyed or lost its harmony. The statue is a huge figure of a woman who steps forward with a raised sword. In this way the author has embodied the image of the motherland that encourages her sons to protect their land from the enemy. … Read further
