#18 of 561 in Sightseeing in Moscow
Monument Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
