Yekaterinburg War Memorial, Yekaterinburg

(4.6/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This is not just a monument and a memorial to all fallen for the motherland. Sad monument. On the contrary, the District Officer's House. next to him a few pieces of military equipment on the pedestals are also interesting.

  • In my opinion nothing special, except that for people directly related to the conflict. A large square with a fountain, on which it is located is of greater interest. But collectors of military memorials it makes sense to visit, of course.
