Three-dimensional panorama "Heroes of the Brest Fortress" is a recreated interior of the Brest Fortress. Here you can see the barracks, cellars, the courtyard and the river bank. Against this background, there is a battle scene that occurred in June 1941.
It is noteworthy that some sculptures represent real heroes. For example, the captain Ivan Nikolaevich Zubachev, who was a native of the Ryazan region. He led the Citadel defense together with other commanders. It was thanks to his participation in the battle that the panorama appeared in Ryazan. In addition, considerable importance was also due to the fact that Ryazan is a sister city of Brest.
As the head of the team "Nevsky Batalist", who created the panorama, Dmitriy Poshtarenko, said that the panorama was worked on for 40 days. Initially, sculptures were made in St. Petersburg, where the team "Nevsky Batalist" works. In June 2017 the team arrived in Ryazan, where the installation began. As a result, a three-dimensional panorama was opened in the MFC Ryazansky.
"The most important difference from ordinary museums is the opportunity to be inside the event itself. We feel the atmosphere of presence in the frozen second of the battle. There are no objects that would be somewhere behind the glass. Visitors walk through the interiors of the Brest Fortress, we go out into the street in front of the barracks where the battle is fought. There are no special fences, visitors are moving along the excursion route. And from the usual panorama is different in that we are inside the picture, "Dmitry Poshtarenko told the publication.
The panorama was created with the support of the government of the Ryazan region. The opening was attended by the provincial governor Nikolai Lyubimov. He noted that the panorama helps visitors to understand how hard victory was won in the Great Patriotic War.
"This is a terrific sight. Very clearly and naturally. I think that this will help to form a real idea of the war for young people. It is much stronger than reading a book or watching a movie. We will definitely invite students and schoolchildren here on excursions, "the government's press service quoted the press service of the regional government.
Everyone can see the panorama - the entrance is free. It is assumed that the panorama will remain in Ryazan forever. The head of the region noted that over time the panorama will move to one of the museums of the city.
