  • One of the best museums in the region. With great eye to details. Plus their bunker with sound and light system is truly amazing to feel the atmosphere of the day of the attack.
  • Really impressive memorial museum. You'll get a walking route and there are bunkers where you can watch a informative movie. There is also a lot to see. The last bunker is where you can experience a fight. This gets very loud and contains flashes. There is also a monument and planted trees for passed away veterans. The story behind this place is really impressive and breathtaking and worth to be heard.
