Tomb of Unknown Soldier, Moscow

(4.3/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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 monument expresses the most respectful attitude towards the memory of soldiers who died during the war against the nazi. Impressive guard ceremony.  more »
  • At the beginning of the Alexander gardens, near the red square. Every day, every hour, from 8 to 20 held the changing of the guard. Nothing memorable.

  • The war memorial to all soldiers who fell in the war 1941-1945 year. The Memorial is located near the Kremlin wall in the Alexander garden. Worth to visit and pay tribute to the memory of all those killed in the war.
