Photo and description
Sapun Mountain is a natural mountain barrier on the outskirts of the city. It became the arena of fierce battles during the heroic defense of Sevastopol in 1941-1942, as well as during its liberation in 1944. At the top of Sapun Mountain there is a memorial complex in memory of the soldiers who liberated Sevastopol during the Great Patriotic War.
The heroic events of those days are resurrected by the diorama `` Storming Sapun Mountain on May 7, 1944 ''. The artists depicted one of the episodes of the battle for the liberation of Sevastopol from the Nazis. The diorama is located in the semicircular museum building, on the second floor. The author of the diorama is People's Artist of the USSR P.T. Maltsev.
On the site there are samples of Soviet military equipment during the war: tanks, cannons, self-propelled guns, mines. On the mountainside there is a monument to the soldiers of the 77th division, killed here during the assault on the enemy's fortifications. In the park there is an obelisk of Glory, built in 1944. The names of the army and navy formations that participated in the liberation of the city are carved on the steles.
