Victory Square, Minsk

(4.4/5 based on 460+ 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. Arrange to visit Victory Square and other attractions in Minsk using our Minsk vacation route planner.

  • My apartment is in one of those big buildings in the background, and the square is an ideal landmark for visitors. The Metro is accessible under the monument, and Gorky Park is just around the corner....  more »
  • A monument on the square in the center of the city, on the homonymous Metro station. Nearby is the amusement park.
