Mamayev Hill Monuments, Volgograd
(5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
The place where the Soviet army defeated Nazi Germany on the Eastern Front is marked by a number of memorial structures known as Mamayev Hill Monuments. This collection of monuments was constructed between 1959 and 1967 to honor the military men who fought and defeated Hitler's army in the Battle of Stalingrad during World War II. In addition to touring the site and viewing these memorial pieces, be sure to take in views of the city from the foot of the Motherland statue, an allegorical work by Yevgeny Vuchetich. The historical outdoor exhibitions and underground eternal flame are well worth a trip up the hill.

  • Were long impressed and sunk down into the soul from the fact that when there was war and where the beam at Stalingrad even my grandfather died my dad hadn't seen it had gone to war before his birth.

  • Every time visiting this holy place for each Russian citizen going through an extraordinary burst of Patriotism it is capitalized, nenapusknogo, which all already overfed. Comes the realization that the human will, multiplied by the love for the motherland, can work wonders. And the ingenious plan of the complex, embodied in the Vuchetichem plain gray concrete, captures the visitor from the first steps of the staircase "into eternity". Be sure to visit!
