During the history of the city it has been featured in several names: first mentioned in the tsar’s official letter in 1589 as a Caricin pile castle built at the mouth of the river Caricin on the Volga coast. In 1925 he was named Stalingrad by J.V Stalin and became a world-renowned by Stalingrad during the Second World War.
Allegedly, the occupation of the city became Hitler’s obsession, though there was no real reason to do so because the Volga transport could have prevented it from reaching the river elsewhere.
In fact the siege of Stalingrad was the first serious battle in a city in history, and the Soviets were helped by the winter to block the German replenishment: the Germans did not really like the – 40-degree colds. Therefore after the losing battle, about 90,000 Germans were killed in the Soviet detention camp. Then the town is listed in 1961 as Volgograd.
In particular, three kilometers from the city center stands a truly special monument on the Mamajev hill, the statue of “The Motherland Calls” of 85 meters high, the most powerful war memorial of the former Soviet Union. Basically in 1967, when it was inaugurated, it was the tallest sculpture in the world.
Altogether the bustling metropolis is densely lined with charming parks, high-quality zoo and world-class museums, which provide a one-day full-day program, and its temples and cathedrals are beautifully decorated in typically Russian style.
Approaching the city either by the river or by rail (a major railroad hub), or if you prefer a faster trip, you can also fly by plane: the city has an international airport as well.
