  • Despite the bitter cold was really revealing! More friendly to anyone who visited the Berlin! It is a monument in honor of the fallen Soviet soldiers against the Nazis. Topical and instructive ...

  • Impressive monumental Park, legacy of the USSR in Berlin. Actually it is a cemetery of Soviet soldiers fallen in the battle of Berlin. Is very quiet and you can stroll in family, with friends or simply only.

  • 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.

  • 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!
