This aluminium welcome sign contains the two former names of Volgograd and the name it currently holds. From left to right: Volgograd (1961-today) - Stalingrad (1925-1961) - Tsaritsyn (1589-1925). The Gold Star is also mentioned on the sign, which reminds the visitor of this city of the fact that Stalingrad was declared "Hero City" in 1945 for its heroicly defence by the Red Army during the Battle of Stalingrad.
