Stalin Line tour

updated on 19/01/2017

This Minsk tour will take you 34 kilometers away from the capital city into typical Belarusian countryside where an open-air museum of the military gear was established in 2006 - mostly Soviet weapons and facilities. Restored concrete gun emplacements that once made a huge defense line on the western Soviet border are the highlight of the place.

World's safest workplace. Welcome to Stalin Line Museum complex those who have a few hours to spare in Minsk) #minsktours #belarus  #belarusgram

Stalin Line is an informal name applied to a defense line that was built by the Soviets along the new western border in the 1930s (Maginot Line, France, was built for the same purpose). The site is divided into a number of sections that include restored bunkers with authentic interiors, exhibition areas with military vehicles (mostly post WWII) and equipment and a reenactment battlefield. Museum guides dressed in the uniforms of the 1940s will tell you about the story behind the whole project and explain the operating principles of different exhibits.

A guided walk past the bunkers, trenches, tank obstacles and a restored section of the old border line can be concluded with a prearranged tank ride (as passengers, naturally). 

As a certified guide I have the right to translate after the Stalin Line guides.

At the end of the tour we can taste some army dishes and - time and budget permitting - shoot an original war-time gun (blank rounds, of course).

Tour duration: 3.5 hours, around 80 km round way.

Tour price: USD 130 (per car, 1-2 pax)*

Note: the price quoted for the present Minsk tour is for reference purpose and is confirmed upon request. It covers transportation (the standard option for 1-2 pax is Skoda Superb), an English-speaking guide-driver, entrance and parking fees, on-site translation of a local tour, travel services and taxes. The tour is available round the week, except Mondays
