Starting from the road an impressive pink granit paved alley shows you the way to the Memorial itself . The place is solemn and instantly commands attention and respect , A special touch by the designer of the place is the sound - intented to be the sound of a heart - augments the already impressive atmosphere of the place

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.
