Victory Square, Minsk

(4.4/5 based on 480 reviews on the web)
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.

  • The area is worth a visit for the sake of Victory monument. On two homes (started in 1939, ended after the war in 1947) placed the words "Feat is immortal" people. Illuminated during the hours of darkness. Drove night, saw beautiful looks. Then, shortly before the day of departure. The move came not, come to the monument, probably possible only through transition, because around the monument on the square roundabout and no pedestrian crossings have not noticed. Eternal flame (lit in 1961) is near the Obelisk. Victory monument itself of granite in the Centre of the square was erected in 1954. in honour of Soviet Army soldiers and partisans who perished in the battles for the liberation of Byelorussia. Represents a form chetyrehgrannogo a bayonet. Height of 38 metres. It is crowned with the order of victory. Appropriate Memorial. The good thing is that the memory of the defenders, the V.O.V. is not erased, supported. Around the square buildings built 50-IES of the 20 century.
