Great tribute made to the red army. Unfortunately most of the text is in Russian. It's Very close to the brandenburg gate so try and visit it too.

Passed by this understated memorial wall which also displays two Russian tanks and field artillery pieces. Do go behind the memorial to the white building that has more information. Not surprisingly this is popular with Russian visitors.

What a fantastic memorial to the fallen, pity history tends to keep repeating itself. If you're at the gate its only a minute or so from Brandenburg Gate and a must see

I could not read or understand a word in this memorial. All words were in russian. No english at all. I could only appreciate the structure and pay tributes to all those who sacrificed lives in this history of Berlin.

The first two T34 tanks into Berlin, artillery pieces, the exhibits in the back. All simply magnificent. Leave aside today's Russian actions the Soviets basically won the war and rid the world of the Nazis and this is a monument to one of the major actions to how this happened. Best viewed also in the context of other museums of... More

Very interesting place to see. If you go behind the memorial they have some posters telling a lot of the second world war.

During our visit to Berlin we took a moment to stop by the Soviet War Memorial at Tiergarten. It is an impressive Monument located on the right side of the Straße des 17 Juni, coming from the Brandenburger Tor. The Monument was erected just a few months after the capture of Berlin, to honor its war dead. Remarkable is both... More

It's not the memorial which grabbed me, it's the gifts of flowers and candles every day and the outpourings of grief which still happen here every day. Made from stone dragged from the Reichs Chancellery and with two T34 tanks and two artillery pieces as gate guardians the structure is imposing - but it was people who made the visit... More
