'The Motherland Calls' Sculpture, Volgograd

4.9
See one of the enduring icons of Soviet Russia at 'The Motherland Calls' Sculpture, a towering monument dedicated to one of the country's great World War II triumphs--the battle of Stalingrad. Climb the 200 steps, symbolizing the 200 days of the battle, which lead from the bottom of the hill to the base of the monument. The sculpture represents a woman raising a sword in an act of defiance while extending her other arm in a calling gesture. Measuring 85 m (279 ft) from the tip of the sword to the top of the plinth, it is the world's tallest statue of a woman. The model for the statue was a native of the city who is still recognized for her resemblance to it. Notice how the plinth leans to the side due to seeping groundwater.

  • I'm here a second time. In the first complex of monuments appeared more :) In general, it is impossible to evaluate such places. We were unlucky, the sculpture was on restoration. One sword was visible. By the next May they promised to restore completely.

  • Every time I come to Volgograd and I can't help but visit this place! I would like to express my gratitude for the fact that this place is getting better every year. all well-groomed, pleasant and most importantly conveys the atmosphere of war. I can't hold back my tears every time. 1000 times thank you that we have such a wonderful place in the country. Be sure to take the children and come!

  • The monument is impressive, but if you are going to see it this August 2019, you should keep in mind that it is in restoration, thus the scaffolding will deplore the usual stunning photos.

  • The sculpture is second to none. Being a work of a genius, it evokes a wide range of emotions. Currently is being renovated until April, 2020. But don't be sorry if you find the view a bit obstructed. Its enormous presence is still there. And this is the first time this sculpture is being renovated almost in a century, so consider it an opportunity to see it in a different way
  • It is a touching place to visit. You can feel the sense of Russian pride of its nation.
  • Your friends have all ready And know what you need and get free know about this all day long time no one else matters
  • Breath taking, a lot of respect for all the fallen heroes.
  • Nice place to go. Full of memories in WWII. Beautiful but sadly stories behind. You must go there.
