What to expect
Kursk is a city that is not very big, but impressive. This ancient settlement, which is described in the annals of the 11th century, is full of sights. Among them there are a number of really significant, interesting for most tourists. Realizing this, the organizers of excursion tours almost always include at least half of these places in their program. This is the unique museums, and beautiful temples, and original monuments, and a variety of theaters ... Let's dwell on some of them in more detail.
First of all, what kind of excursion in the city of Kursk without the museum of the Battle of Kursk? One of the greatest battles of World War II, which lasted as much as 50 days, found a worthy reflection in the military history museum. More than 10 thousand copies, including the arms of the armies of Germany and the USSR, military clothing and many photographs - it's really great!
Another museum, which in Kursk is worth paying attention to is fire and rescue. He clearly narrates the history of fire brigades from the era of Ivan the Terrible up to our time. Fascinating expositions with many facts and historical data, with unique information and photos can not leave anyone indifferent!
Among the monuments of architecture the Triumphal Arch deserves special attention. It is difficult to judge its historical value, because it was built only in 2000, and timed to the Battle of Kursk, which is well covered by the museum described above. Near the arch there is a beautiful monument to Marshal Zhukov, the hero of the glorious battle. But its main attraction is the legendary sculpture of St. George the Victorious on its top, which is simply delightful.
Among the religious buildings of the city of Kursk, Znamensky cathedral is especially striking. It can not be said that from the outside it shines with the beauty and genius of architectural thought, but still the eyes at the sight of it rejoice. Moreover, outside, he may not be handsome, but inside it's just a chic cathedral, which can be enthusiastically seen all day. Adds oil to the fire and historical value: the temple is already half a millennium!
Finally, the purely cultural landmark of Kursk is the Pushkin Drama Theater. The name of the great Russian poet is for good reason immortalized here, because the theater is one of the oldest in the country. He is handsome in appearance and rich inwardly, very talented actors play in him. Among the Kursk theaters, this one is the most significant for the city and all of Russia. He deserves the closest attention, like the other described attractions of Kursk. Having visited this city, it is worth to look them.
