  • The system is really clean and nicely done, on the one hand, German on the other Russian. the history is presented from the classroom... of course a hero. The statue is impressive. in any case worth watching.

  • An excellent and emotional experience. You are advised to research this site beforehand to properly appreciate it. 
  • Is the largest of the three Russian war memorials. There are 5000 fallen Soviet soldiers buried in the battle of Berlin. From the outset, the atmosphere of solemnity and peace. At the beginning of the path there is the statue of Mother Russia, a woman with her face bowed, distraught over the loss of so many soldiers. Pardell to the mausoleum, on a hill crowned by a gigantic statue that represents a soldier holding a child just vacated. The soldier stomps with the boot a swastika. Around are the birches and the characteristic trees from the trunk White Russian forests. Compared to Russian Memorial in Tiergarten, this in Treptower Park is larger, more majestic and one feels even more the ideology of Soviet socialism. Beyond ideology, this monument is to visit, to enjoy more peace.

  • History is definitely written by the winners. This place is a must! The scale is impressive and it somehow keeps a solemn, sad atmosphere. Totally recommended.
  • Very impressive and beautiful. Very well maintained. Not on the normal tours, but you have to see this!
  • Stunning Soviet era Brutalist architecture commemorating soldiers who fell during the Battle of Berlin in 1945. There are 16 stone sarcophagi that line both sides, with relief carvings of military scenes and quotations from Joseph Stalin, on one side in Russian, on the other side the same text in German. The scale of the monument must be experienced in person to be truly appreciated.
  • Really nice place to go for a walk and relax, it is a quiet place. Unfortunately some parents do not realize that this place is actually a Russian war cemetery! So please do not let your kids think this is a playground, be respectful!!! Just because you cannot see any headstones it does not mean it's a playground.
  • Super impressive memorial to the Soviet soldiers in WW2. Very cool to walk around and take pictures while also serving as a very sobering reminder of both the extreme size and power that the Soviet Union used to have and also of how much of a role they played in WW2. Go at sunset for really amazing pictures!
