Mamayev Hill Monuments, Volgograd

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.

    Be Vogograde and not visit the Mamayev Kurgan is simply not forgivable. In Volgograd we arrived before dawn, so have time to visit this Memorial and at night the lights and in sunlight. This complex is a very majestic place reminiscent of the heroism of our people.

    Really liked it. The monument makes a strong impression. The architect managed to pass all the tremendous depth of maternal grief. Mother mourns son killed, the sea of tears. I believe that Memorial visit and need to show his children.
