When in Murmansk you may as well check this out, the Kursk memorial and the church that sits near them both.

It's nearly impossible to rate a Memorial ... so many lives lost one becomes numb to the extent of the tragedy called War. I easily could have rated it higher. The flags adorning the inside of the major structure are simple but impressive. The salvaged...More

This place has no much for offering like "spectacular", but is a place you must visit. For me, in the personal, is the Kурск Memorial, where a part of the submarine is, and remember the tragedy where 118 soldiers die.

This memorial is bigger than the average in Murmansk and consists of a tower located on a hill, a few kilometres out of the centre. Easy enough to walk to, but a bit unpleasant on a rainy day. There are nice views over the city...More

The lighthouse is only a replica build specifically for this memorial. The only incident I could remember the 2000 Desaster when the Kursk submarine exploded and all 118 on board died. Their names are listed here. Also part of the submarine is displayed there.

This place has a church, which is small but cozy and beautiful and you see lots of people always paying tribute.

I visit this place in Jan 2014. Whole Murmansk was covered with snow. Amazing view of nature. There is a light house, a huge anchor and a memorial of soldiers.

The "lighthouse" is an iconic landmark with a great overview of the harbor and estuary area near the city. If in town, go by for the view.
