The actor’s house is now a public cultural center, collecting in its walls not only the theater public of the city and the region, but also all lovers of theatrical art.

The most noticeable of them are the author’s cycle of Mikhail Muginstein “400 years of opera”, the student club “The School of Theater Critics”, uniting young lovers of the theater, “Open Scene”, which gives artists of different theaters to unite for joint creative work. The most famous project of the actor’s house is the famous family holidays in the best traditions of Russian mansions, philanthropy and charity “Christmas tree in the Dullfish House” - stylized representations in the old style that go in the actor’s house in New Year's days and are created by leading creative forces of the city.

2. Т-34

Show sight on map

The T-34 is a Soviet medium tank from World War II. When introduced, its 76.2 mm (3 in) tank gun was more powerful than its contemporaries, and its 60-degree sloped armour provided good protection against anti-tank weapons. The T-34 had a profound effect on the conflict on the Eastern Front, and had a long-lasting impact on tank design. The tank was praised by multiple German generals when encountered during Operation Barbarossa, although its armour and armament were surpassed later in the war. Though, its main strength was its cost and production time, meaning that German panzer forces would often fight against Soviet tank forces several times their size. The T-34 is also a critical part of the mechanized divisions that form the backbone of the Deep Battle Strategy.

3. РСЗО БМ-13 «Катюша»

Show sight on map

The Katyusha is a type of rocket artillery first built and fielded by the Soviet Union in World War II. Multiple rocket launchers such as these deliver explosives to a target area more intensively than conventional artillery, but with lower accuracy and requiring a longer time to reload. They are fragile compared to artillery guns, but are cheap, easy to produce, and usable on almost any chassis. The Katyushas of World War II, the first self-propelled artillery mass-produced by the Soviet Union, were usually mounted on ordinary trucks. This mobility gave the Katyusha, and other self-propelled artillery, another advantage: being able to deliver a large blow all at once, and then move before being located and attacked with counter-battery fire.

It introduced a number of advanced features including composite armour, a compact engine and transmission, and a smoothbore 125-mm gun equipped with an autoloader to allow the crew to be reduced to three so the tank could be smaller and lighter. In spite of being armed and armoured like a heavy tank, the T-64 weighed only 38 tonnes.
