Soviet War Memorial, Berlin

(440+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
One of the central war memorials of Germany, Soviet War Memorial commemorates the 80,000 Soviet soldiers who perished in the Battle of Berlin in 1945. Just steps away from the Brandenberg Gate in Berlin's Tiergarten, this memorial was built only months following the battle and the capture of the city. Two T-34 tanks sit aside the bronze statue of a Red Army soldier, while large columns bear the names of fallen soldiers. An outdoor museum just behind the memorial shows photographs from its construction. Add Soviet War Memorial and other attractions to your Berlin trip itinerary using our Berlin vacation planner.
