Volgograd residents never cease to amaze. It turns out that the Great Patriotic War ended in 1945 on Mamayev Kurgan my city. From time to time, when there is such an opportunity, I allow myself “little pranks”.

I go out into the streets of the city, introduce myself to visitors, and ask Volgograd residents, usually young people, various questions from the school curriculum regarding the history of our city.

Today we are talking about just one of these walks.

For the most part, Volgograd residents love # Volgograd and know its history. Often, answers to questions turn into whole lectures, the content of which can be envied by teachers of not only schools, but also universities.

Sometimes you hear the truth and funny answers that just dont fit in my head.

So recently, walking along the central embankment of the city, I really wanted coffee, as I did not want, probably never. It happens!

Fortunately, there was a mobile coffee shop on my way, and I went straight to it.

A pretty girl of about twenty, having introduced me to a coffee card and having received an order for an Americano with coconut syrup, immediately started preparing this divine drink.

– What can you see in your city? – I started naturally.

– Cossack theater, – the girl answered without hesitation.

Unexpected, I thought.

– And what else? – I continued, hoping to hear about Mamaev Kurgan.

– NET (New Experimental Theater), – sounded in response.

Some kind of theater-goer, I thought again.

“I heard that you have a mound in your city,” I continued, hoping to turn the conversation back on track.

– Are you talking about Mamayev Kurgan? – asked the girl.

Well, thank God, I sighed with relief.

– Your coffee is ready, 100 rubles from you.

After paying and taking the first sip, I continued.

– And what kind of Mamayev Kurgan? What is it famous for?

– There is a monument “The Motherland Calls!”

– Is that all?

– No, – answered the girl, a little thoughtful.

Then a phrase sounded, from which a glass of coffee almost fell out of my hands.

– The war ended on Mamayev Kurgan in 1945.

– On Mamayev Kurgan? – I asked again.

– On Mamayev Kurgan, – the girl confirmed.

– In 1945?

– In 1945!

– And I didnt know, thanks for enlightening …

Then a customer came up and there was no way to continue our conversation.
