The Road of Life Museum (a branch of the Central Naval Museum) hosted commemorative events dedicated to the opening day of this transport artery during the Great Patriotic War (80 years ago).

A commemorative meeting began at the Ladoga Kurgan. Creative groups performed here with a literary and musical program. Wreaths were lowered into the waters of Ladoga in memory of the victims of the besieged Leningrad; balloons in the form of white doves were launched into the sky.

On this day, during the events, the lilac alley of the museum was replenished with the variety “Polina Osipenko”, named in honor of the pilot of the Great Patriotic War. In the conference hall of the museum there was an award ceremony for children – winners of the children’s drawing competition of the Children’s Art School named after M.I. Glinka town of Vsevolozhsk.

The memorable day ended with watching the documentary “Ladoga” and sightseeing tours for the guests of the museum.

For reference:

On September 12, 80 years ago, the Orel tugboat under the command of Captain Ivan Erofeev approached Cape Osinovets and delivered two barges with flour and weapons. This is how the “Road of Life” began to operate.

On September 12, 1972, a branch of the Central Naval Museum, the Road of Life Museum, opened its doors. This year he turned 49 years old.
