World Cup Fever: Volgograd. Stunning river views & epic monuments at WWII’s bloodiest battle

Our football fanatics fly into Volgograd, formerly Stalingrad – the site of World War II’s bloodiest battle. After engaging in a little agro-tourism, they take a night stroll along the city’s spectacular riverside promenade, where the fan zone for the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be. The next day, they check out the stunning new Volgograd Arena, which was specially built to harmonise with The Motherland Calls statue towering in the distance. On their final day, the friends check out the epic 85-metre monument to those who lost their lives defending the city.
