  • Memorial dedicated to Red Army within Treptower Park and easily accessible by bus or train. Inside are buried 5,000 Russian soldiers fallen in the battle of Berlin between 1941 and 1945. The visit will leave you speechless. After crossing the entrance (there are two) you will find a statue of a heartbroken woman representing the "mother country Russia." Following the Avenue you will find the first side of the Memorial that contains two large stylized flags of the Soviet Union with two Red Army soldiers who mourn their fallen. On the other side the imposing statue of a Russian soldier who saves a German child resting his sword on a swastika destroyed. Not to be missed!

  • 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!
