Museum-Reserve “The Battle for Kyiv in 1943”
Seventy years ago, during the Second World War, the territory around Kyiv was the place of the “Battle for the Dnieper” – one of the largest battles in world history (750 km front, 4 million people).
As a result, the German troops were forced to retreat, and Kyiv was liberated on November 6, 1943. The State Museum-Reserve “The Battle for Kyiv in 1943” located in the village of Novi Petrivtsi near Kyiv is dedicated to these events. Location of the museum on Google Maps.
