Victory Memorial and Eternal Flame, Chisinau

(4.3/5 based on 180 reviews on the web)
At Victory Memorial and Eternal Flame, a circle of five red, uncompromising, abstract pillars thrusts skyward, representing the five years of Moldovan involvement in World War II. A stark and somber Soviet-era memorial of open spaces delineated by hard marble, the memorial honors those fallen in battle. The eternal flame burns for the unknown soldiers of World War II, and also for those killed in the 1992 War of Transnistria. Walk among the dark graves of the fallen, watched over by the imposing, sculpted murals of soldiers above, and examine the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

  • On the Memorial are each year in May. I, her husband and two children. The complex represents the fenced-in territory where there is a monument in the form of three rifles, looking in the sky Between guns eternal flame. one alley dedicated to the Memorial boards have a small bell tower, anyone can hit a Bell in memory of the fallen soldiers. A huge green lawn, with neatly podstrizhenoj grass and children on it an incredible expanse of the green zone around the track with birch trees and benches Memorial works every day, but of course it is a special day on May 9. mass celebrations, laying flowers, military songs coming from every corner of this wonderful park (along the perimeter of the installed speakers), Live orchestras, an atmosphere of grandeur, pride ... Despite the fact that the complex has impressive size (Stadium), being there, you feel comfortable, relaxed and secure. Advise everyone to visit this magical place and pay tribute to the memory of the great heroes of WWII.

  • Standard Soviet Memorial reanimated by the authorities of Moldova. Near the ancient cemetery (Central Orthodox), there to walk much more interesting.
