Pay attention if you plan to travel to the eastern part of your country, which will add flavor to your trip. Be sure to include the FIELD MUSEUM in your itinerary to see Buir Lake, Meneng Plains, and Khalkh River War Monuments in the Eastern Province.
The open-air museum or FIELD DISPLAY MUSEUM, which tells about the Khalkh River War of 1939, has an open-air display with a radius of 3 kilometers, starting from the cups, spoons, and utensils of the soldiers used at that time, and then placing weapons and equipment. The place soaked in the sweat and blood of soldiers who sacrificed their lives for their country is 15 kilometers northeast of the center of Khalkh river bullet in Dornod Province. Please note that this area is not a border area, so it is advisable to obtain permission in advance. There is also a chance to meet the relevant people directly from the bullet center. Or contact the staff of the Victory Museum. In general, if you go to the FIELD MUSEUM after visiting the Victory Museum, it will undoubtedly be more interesting for your knowledge. Riding around Meneng, resting on the shore of Buir Lake, and visiting the historical monuments of Khalkh river, you will come across a plain wall-shaped WALL monument. It is a very special statue. At the beginning of the war, the foreign invaders penetrated about 20 kilometers into Mongolia, but they could not enter the place where the WALL statue is located. The WALL monument was erected to perpetuate this symbol. This is the merit of the Mongolian soldiers and Soviet Russia who swore an oath to their country. However, due to the war, it is said that 980 brave soldiers of Mongolia and 26840 brave soldiers of Soviet Russia lost their lives for the independence of the Mongolian People’s Republic beyond the monument.
The Khalkh river War began on May 8, 1939, and ended on September 16. It is said that a total of 75,000 soldiers, 700 aircraft, 181 tanks, and 500 artillery pieces were used.
