Victory Square is a genuine Soviet-era square. See the 38 m (124 ft) high granite monument dedicated to the millions who died in the Great Patriotic War--World War II. Watch for the red star and the old Soviet coat of arms on its top, and pay attention to the sculpture of Lenin on the side of the monument. The face of Stalin, which used to be there, was converted into Lenin's ear. An eternal flame flickers at the base of the obelisk, making it a popular spot for photographs. You can discover more about the square and its role in Belarusian history in the museum under the square. The main entrance to famous Gorky Park is also on this square.
