That military museum is situated forty kilometers east from Saint Petersburg on the left bank of the river Neva. This is the place where the Soviet Army started the offensive on January 12, 1943 and by January 30 unblocked the city. Museum has small but very good collection of WW II Soviet tanks. All tanks were drowned in the river Neva during in 1941-1943 and found within last decade. Many tanks which had no combat damages were still operatable despite sixty years under water. Museum also has the diorama showing the scenes from the first day of Soviet Army offensive on January 12, 1943.
Access to museum: tourist can get it by car (the best option) or public buses #565 and 575 from the bus stop near the metro station “Ulitsa Dybenko” at Saint Petersburg.
Working time from Monday through Sunday, from 11:00 -18:00
