Victory Memorial and Eternal Flame, Chisinau
(4.3/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • We are colleagues, all retired go to the victory day on May 9 at the Memorial. Place flowers, communicate with each other and the veterans. Very sorry that my neighbor in the year 2016, passed away in 2017 it will no longer be on the Memorial. And all the Ministers of defence, I want to say the following: remember that sooner or later you will stop to be, so we must stay a man otherwise such as we will be in your face bad words about our shared victory in World War II.
