Victory Memorial and Eternal Flame, Chisinau

4.4
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.

  • I stayed 3 weeks in Chisinau and, despite the snow and ice, walked about a lot. The visit to the Memorial and Eternal Flame exceeded my expectations because the complex/park is enormous. Snow covered,...  more »
  • Really good place for amazing photos! Huge place. Here burns the eternal flame still strong. Highly recomended!  more »
  • The contribution in terms of human lives and resources from the Soviet Union in the defeat of Nazism is a historical fact that remains carved over time as the commemorative monuments made in various parts of the former Soviet Empire. This is one of the examples, maybe not as successful but not to sneeze at. Can certainly testify to that sense of grandeur for which it has been erected. Spaces as usual are huge, maybe too much, but the extension is part of the project ... I don't recommend visiting on days and the hottest hours because the shady spots are really very few.
