New findings from the Battle of Poltava are available for the visitors.

A few very interesting findings from the time of the Battle of Poltava were shown to the public in the special exhibition hall of Poltava Regional Museum. Many of them were found during archeological excavations that were carried out recently in the downtown. Besides some examples of cold steel, firearms, maps, and portraits are also shown there. This hall is a very place where the bronze bust of Swedish King Charles XII created by artist Bernhard Englund is exhibited. For those who a fond of live Swedish history I would like to recomend strongly his amazing site dedicated to Ryttmästarbostället vid Simsjön.
