It's a good sample of the soviet memorials - grey ganite, red stars, USSR voctory order at the top of the obelisk. Dispate of... More

It is a round square with an obelisk and an eternal flame in the heart of the city. To get there you should first go underground or come to Ploshcha Peramohi metro station and then take stairs. What you will see is a granite obelisk with 4 sides and one relief on each of them made by four different sculptors... More

A very beautiful and yet somber place to visit, this is a World War 2 monument, there is a large pillar similar to the Washington monument in USA but on each side of the monument beautiful and detailed carvings of the struggle to defeat the Nazi invasion and the final victory, each side tells through its artwork a different portion...

You can't miss this obelisk jutting up towards the clouds on the main drag in Minsk. Take note of the intricate details : Belarusian symbols amidst the Soviet ones. This square is worth seeing, take a moment to approach the pillar and look around.

Victory Square is very big with buildings of similar picturesque design around its perimeter. The Square is dominated by a huge 38-40 metres tall obelisk, a memorial to the country's war dead. Victory Square with its eternal flame is a place of pilgrimage for the people of Belarus wishing to remember the millions that died in the Great Patriotic War... More

A nice big monument with "the eternal fire" to remember those who died in the war. Underground it is connected to the metro line, so you can come here straight from the metro.
