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?... More

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.

This is not a cemetery. It is a long wide alley in the woods with the statue of Mother who lost her sons and daughters in the most disastrous war in human history. Her heart beats slowly and you can hear it. I like visiting this place after sunset. During the war Kharkiv, the third largest city in the Soviet... More
