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.

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
