Yekaterinburg War Memorial, Yekaterinburg

Pay respect to the lives lost in the conflicts of the late 20th and early 21st century at Yekaterinburg War Memorial. This touching monument was initially erected in memory of the casualties of the Afghan War, and was later expanded to include the victims of the war in Chechnya. Curved black marble pillars that bear the years of conflicts and the names of the fallen surrounded the statue of a soldier with his head bowed. In front of the memorial you'll often see flowers left by people to honor those who are gone but not forgotten.

    One of the symbols of the city, and a must-see for history lovers. A really solemn but heroic representation of the war.  more »

    A sad monument to the grief of the loss of our brothers. Glory to the heroes of our country. One thought on war worries our hearts. An impressive monument, do not want our children to go through such a war.

    Called "Afghan" in memory to all the soldiers who died in Afghanistan and Chechnya, but it is actually a monument against all wars. Interesting a sculpture that commemorates the "Pieta" on the back.
