#54 of 2,722 in Things to do in Moscow
Tomb of Unknown Soldier honors the Soviet soldiers killed in World War II. See the bronze sculpture of a soldier's helmet and the laurel branch on the banner. An eternal flame on the five-pointed star illuminates the inscription: "Your name is unknown, your deed is immortal." Porphyry blocks filled with soils from 40 hero cities line the path on the right, and the obelisk at the end of the path bears the city names. Watch the changing of the guard ceremony, which occurs every hour. You may see newlyweds leaving flowers at the memorial.

  • The memorial is in place outside the Kremlin, for the two times of the World War, the German-Russian war, all the countless Russian warriors, the day I arrived at the end of a heavy rain, after the rain a fresh and quiet, star-shaped flowers Longgang Rock engraved with the motto, the effect is not, but your work is forever long. There are guards on both sides of the monument Longgang, this time there is no chance to see the Longgang ceremony, I hope next time to see.

  • In the changing of the guard you can feel the honor and respect presented to the fallen soldiers. Every hour on the hour the changing take place and it is free to watch. It is recommended to arrive 15 minutes before in order to observe it in the front row.
  • Very good to watch. It happens fast so if you want to see it, you must be there before each hour.
  • On the hour guard changes. Good to see. Get there a bit early to grab a front row in order to catch the scene.
  • Great place to visit. Change of Guards is fun!
  • An easy stop on your way around the Kremlin. Watch the change of the guards, then compare it to the one in Arlington :)
