As part of the events dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945, servicemen of the Tula Guards Airborne Force visited the unique exhibition “Victory Train”.

A unique museum with an exposition showing the life of people during the war received paratroopers at the city station. Each of the eight carriages of the train symbolizes a certain stage – from peacetime to the horrors of the concentration camp, hospitals and the return of the soldiers of that war home.

The servicemen of the formation not only saw the life and everyday life of pre-war Leningrad, but also found themselves in a trench during the battle, “helped” the wounded soldiers, and attended the preparation of the offensive operation and the concept of “Bagration” operation by the command. A special realism and the opportunity to feel the atmosphere of that time during the excursion at each point are given by the interiors of the mobile museum, accompanied by video and audio effects, authentic props and small details that cannot be passed by.

The exposition itself took about two months, and all sounds and video were filmed separately. Before that, mannequins were being prepared for a long time. The exposition contains about four thousand props, including original and 150 sculptures.

The train has 8 cars and 12 exhibits. All visitors are admitted in compliance with all security measures. At the entrance, the servicemen were measured their temperature, were given masks and gloves.

The Victory Train has already visited Pskov, St. Petersburg, Murmansk, Arkhangelsk and Smolensk. There are eight more cities ahead, including Kursk, Kerch and Sevastopol.
