  • Memorable place. Makes you stop and express respect for these guys who died in this war. It is a pity.

  • The 1995 opened monument is dedicated to the memory of soldiers who died in Afghanistan and Chechnya. The name "Black Tulip" in English derives transport aircraft of the nicknames of the an-12, that brought back the bodies of Soviet soldiers from Afghanistan. The centrepiece of the monument is a statue of a seated soldier with a rifle. His head is bent and he stares at the ground. The sense of horror, defeat and devastation is visible on his face.

  • a beautiful city but it's too cold in the winter and covered with flowers around in the summer. It is advisable to go in the summer.
