  • Really liked it. Without unnecessary pathos-page history of the second world war. Clean, well-groomed territory, not naprjagajushhaja.

  • Pretty big Museum near Kiev, focuses on the battle of Kiev in 1943, but has now added the subject of ATO. Closed Exposition at the 2 and 3 floor includes a diorama of the battle of the Dnieper and the other attributes of the 2nd world war, and the first floor placed under the modern realities of war in Donbass. Outdoors displayed military equipment (part of the technology given to the ATO), and a little further a large monument and long trenches with blindés. Definitely one of those places that is worth a visit!
