Amazing statue that is a true reflection of the Russian battles against the Nazis during WW2. See the guard change and then see the very emotional eternal flame before reaching the statue itself.

Amazing place to visit, giving you a sense of awe and thanks to all those that sacrificed. The size of the motherland is calling sculpture doesn't do the soldiers feat of victory justice

Stunning and mesmerising. For me, the monument of all. The Statue of Liberty, Corcovado, pale into insignificance compared to this. For the best reasons too. Superb and humbling.
