As always Soviet monument dramatic huge and we'll constructed. A tribute for all that fought in ww2 1941 to 1945. A very hard battle well won by a patriotic force. Worth the visit.

An impressive square surrounded by striking architecture. Despite being in the city centre, felt relatively calm and peaceful.
