Interventionists in the North: back and forth

An exclusive expedition tour for true connoisseurs of history and adventure!

The foreign military intervention in the North of Russia is full of mysteries and poignant human destinies. It has many faces: there was an intervention, but they try not to mention it once again. There are many documents among the certificates, but most of them are gathering dust on archive shelves. Different versions of the interpretation of events have been voiced, but new questions inevitably arise in the process of searching for facts and truth. The topic is ambiguous, but extremely interesting!

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Meeting, sightseeing in Arkhangelsk

    Arrival in Arkhangelsk. Self-check-in. 

    Meeting with the guide at the hotel.

    Sightseeing bus and walking tour "Intervention in Arkhangelsk".

    On August 2, 1918, life in the city on the Dvina was divided into before and after. It was on this day that a coup was carried out in Arkhangelsk, and the Russian North became white and foreign for many months as opposed to the troops of the Red Army. 

    During a bus and walking tour of the city, we will be transported back a century and visit the Cathedral Pier - the landing site of the interventionist troops.

    Let's walk along the walls of the British Hospital No. 53, the Headquarters of the American troops, the Dormitory of the Government of the Northern Region and the Barracks of the Uprising.

    We will see the Mark V tank, a monument to Pavlin Vinogradov, a man who loudly proved himself in the battles on the river front.

    As well as the Lutheran Church, where many representatives of the Entente countries gathered. 

    We will visit the Orthodox Church of the Assumption, where we will see an iconographic plot dedicated to the Appearance of the Virgin in Arkhangelsk in 1919, and finish the tour at the British War Memorial.

    Tour of the Military Museum-diorama.

    In this unique private museum, we will literally be able to touch history, getting acquainted with the artifacts of the period of intervention in the Russian North, found on the battlefield. 

    With the help of maps, we will study the geography of battles, through diaries we will understand the thoughts and moods of the participants in the events, and watching short videos will clarify the specifics of the field work of a military archaeologist. 

    Lunch in the mess hall of the Military Museum according to traditional military recipes of that time.

    Free time

    Dinner on your own.
