Tomb of Unknown Soldier, Moscow

(400+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Tomb of Unknown Soldier and other Moscow attractions into our Moscow trip itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.
