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.

  • This monument naturally touches our soul, because almost every family living history about our veterans, our grandfathers and djad'jah through the Fiery crucible of fights and battles, on those who remained forever lie on the margin of the terrible war. It is our memory eternal! Forever!

  • Tomb of the unknown soldier is located on the walkway between the red square and the Kremlin in the Alexander Park. An eternal flame is a tribute to Russians who lost their lives in the 2. World War II when they were fighting for their country. The tomb is guarded and it is important to pick up the guard shift that happens every hour. Fun to see the masjerer. We were there in February and it was the little people and easy to fit in front of to get nice pictures.

  • 10 million servicemen were killed in the war in the Soviet Union? What, is the country's largest. Losing the Japanese come to places like this and reminded me that there is a tuple, but fighting with Russia, won one of the few countries in.
