I was impressed by the history of this place. Many things I did not know as a westerner coming here. I would definitely recommend this place to see

Visited back in Oct 2013 when it wasn't nearly as dangerous, this great memorial was dedicated to those who perished during the Nazi-Soviet war back in 1941. Kharkov, as a hero city, had many civilians who were either killed or captured by the Nazis(( That was quite historical. As a commeration of our heroes, this memorial was created. Wonderful!

Especially if you like ants. This was in October. But beautiful in the forest. WW2 monuments themselves are...very Soviet. Stony. Serious. They have caretakers who will scold you for climbing up the stairs for a photo next to the bas relief monument. Saying people are buried there, you're walking on their graves! Hmm... Is that why they put steps there? Besides, the graves are in the grassy portion. We weren't exactly throwing a party. A somber rememberence of my father who fought not so far away. Walk down to the tree-lined river to see a burst of fall colors. But do keep walking. If you have good weather, you have active ants, nearly a centimeter in length! No one else had a problem, but they seemed to love chomping on me.

This is a fantastic tribute to all of the war dead from 1941 until 1945 and it stands at the entrance to the park which is huge however this was not a good time of the year to visit it as weather wasn't very good, summer would be better.

It's not as great as the same type of place in Kiev, but still it makes you feel thankful for people who fight for the freedom of their motherland. It also a popular destination among locals and people from ex-soviet countries.
