“Great sight and amazing monuments”
Review of Victory Square

Victory Square
Reviewed September 8, 2016

The monuments are awe inspiring and the museum is great too. Should spend 2-3 hours, the museum has war scenes depicted in a very realistic manner. It is also a lesson in History and patriotism.

Victory Square is beautifully designed to be a memorial to the Great Patriotic War. There are beautiful fountains, sculptures and a museum. At one end of the square is a obelisk that measures 150 meters high. This square is outside most of the attractions in Moscow (Red Square and the Kremlin) but is well worth a visit.

Very large square in front of Victory Park, yet almost not big enough for all the people coming for Victory Day firework.
Amazing site.

It's an amazing and vast place, including in itself the large park and square, labelled with the name of "Victory". All here, we had perceived was, still is and will be forever with the very important significance, for the russian people, for the foreigners also. In every location of the park and the square, there is something, that recalls You at the most tough and heavy moments of five years long patriotic war.
The long central avenue that runs through the park, is named "Years of War" and has the five terraces symbolizing the five years of conflict. There are also the 1418 fountains - one for every day. Going by memorial chapel, mosque and synagogue, You get to the circular Victors' Place with the triangular obelisk,rising 150 meters above the ground,that is topped with the statue of Nike,the Goddess of Victory.
Behind is situated the crescent -shaped Museum of the Great Patriotic War, in which we had seen the paintings of the battles, of the Reichstag walls with writings of Soviet soldiers on it.
Impressive site, for long remembrance !

When I reached the Victory Square I couldn't believe my eyes. It was a snowy day and everything was covered in snow, which made the scene all the more dramatic. It was a long walk from the beginning of the Square to the tall monument at the end of it. And there were fountains, as well as wall monuments on each side depicting a part of the story from WWII from the beginning till the end at the tower which is another story on it's own! What a fantastic journey, you will travel through time. If you are in Moscow it's a must visit!
