Inside The Hall of Glory

Inside The Hall of Glory

The Hall of Glory is the central hall of the Central museum of the Great Patriotic War in Victory Park. It is intended for the commemoration of names of the Heroes of the Soviet Union, who recieved this title for the exploits in the time of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945. It is a place of honor and of the expression of the profound gratitude to the participants of the war, to the workers of the rear, to the entire nation.

The Hall of Glory is the modern extencive three-dimensional composition. The names of more that 11800 Heroes of USSR and of the Heroes of Russian Federation are perpetuated on the snow-white marble pylons.

The bronze sculpture "The Victory Soldier" is placed at the center of the hall. A sword made by Tula armories lies at its feet on the granite pedestal (on this photo the people are looking on this sword).

The bas-reliefs of the city-heroes decorate the dome of the hall. A laurel wreath symbolizing the Victory triumph frames the domes. The colorful "Order of Victory" is in the center of the dome.

I needed to send my wife and daughter to Moscow. Neither of them had ever been there and we all three were worried. After speaking with Arthur a few times I felt he could be trusted and even felt somewhat comfortable paying him in advance and using his services. When they arrived he met them at the airport. He drove them to their hotel and even showed them the area around the hotel. He himself contacted me to let me know they had arrived safely. I was glad I had trusted him with my two most valuable treasures
and would recommend anyone could do the same.
Months after that, my wife, daughter and I met in Moscow. Naturally and without any hesitation I called on his services again. Since we were arriving at different airports and at different times I was concerned, but he as before eased my mind by taking care of all the arrangements in Moscow for us. He picked the up at their airport, brought them to mine and patiently waited with them. During my visit to Moscow I had hired him numerous times and I was overwhelmed by his courtesy, his knowledge of the city and its vast history, and his willingness to help in any way he could. This was the best sightseeing excursion I had ever been on and the fact that his English was impeccable, and this made it that much better. I will use his services any and every time I am in Moscow. I would highly recommend to anyone going to Moscow, even if you have been there before he can make your stay the most pleasant. Believe me please, he is one man you must know in Moscow.
