Mount of Glory, Slabada

(40+ reviews on the web)
Monument
Mount of Glory uses four bayonets atop a man-made hill to represent each of the Soviet fronts in World War II. You can park your car next to a row of Soviet tanks. Take the stairs, which encircle the grassy hill, offering different views of the monument. The pyramidal hill was built from the scorched earth of the nine Soviet "hero cities," not far from the location of the last battle in Belarus. Notice the sculpted faces of partisans at the base of the monument. Look for a big plaque with the iconic Soviet hammer-and-sickle and a text in mosaic praising the Soviet army for its efforts.

  • A huge mound, evening beautifully highlighted. Particularly worth a stop at the cafe next door is a real public-USSR-cafes and service. Someone likes someone no, but very Soviet.

  • very beautiful when include illumination. not worth it during the summer to get in between watering, unambiguously find yourself wet, hitting under the Jet hose watering. from the top with beautiful overview on the surrounding countryside. You should also read all the plaques and inscriptions.

  • On the way to the airport, the driver, at my request, released at 10 minutes from the mound of glory: fierce battles "Minsk boiler"-man-made Hill with a height of 30 metres. Stella on it 45 metres in height with 4-ring peaks-vertices. This 4-digit symbol of Soviet army fronts, there that fought with the Germans. Shining gold illuminated among the darkness, very impressive. In the sky many stars and half moon. So beautiful that you forget about the cold: as soon as the wind blows, upakovyvaesh'sja in the hood and gloves and run back to the car. Place of memory, but also a great example of Soviet architecture end 60-ies. After minimalism took things into their own hands and incarnated in architecture prefabricated buildings.

  • Foriegn tourists should visit this place. Definitely
  • Fine views of the area and a number of tanks at the foot by the cafe.
  • The Mound of Glory was built to commemorate Belarus' liberation from the Nazis in World War 2. The mound is 35m tall and contains soil taken from all over Belarus. The climb to the top involves two paths that go in opposite directions each of over 240 steps and there is no handrail so stick to the inside if you don't like heights as the sides are very steep! The bayonets on top take the height to 70.6m and there is a beautiful mosaic on the inside of the large ring. When staying in Belarus in 1972 Fidel Castro was reported to have run up the side of the mound on his morning jogs and his security was unable to follow him. At the base where you park there is an open air museum containing various tanks and artillery pieces. Adjacent to this area is a cafe and seating area. The area is easy to get to if you have access to a vehicle or even a taxi as it's adjacent to a major highway around 20km out of Minsk. Like other monuments of this type around Belarus it is common for newlyweds to have their photos taken here.
  • Beautiful place.
  • Cool place with great panoramic view from the top. Hard to get to as it requires a car.
