This World War 2 monumental complex is one of the largest in a World. You need to go upstairs through a set of different monuments up to the top of Mamayev hill. On the top you see 'The Motherland Calls' Sculpture. Must see

We were in Volgograd for a wedding and a trip to Mamayev Kurgen is a must. It is an enormous monument on a small hill in Volgograd, overlooking the Volga to the Battle of Stalingrad in WW2. The hill is one of the highest points in the area and was one of the most important strategic sites during the battle... More

While surprisingly run down in places, overall this monument is breath taking, along with the Russian Guards and grave of Vasiliy Zaitsev, the sniper.

Mother Russia truly is a sight to behold. She gets bigger and bigger as you climb further and further up her hill and finally reach her toes. By the time you've gotten that far, you've already passed statues of soldiers and seen the Tomb of the Unknown. You finally reach Mother Russia, and stroll around her base. Yes, her face... More

I recommend to see the moment, when guards of honor are changing-every 2 hour I think. Monument is great, also you can visit little but very interesting war historical monument Rossoshki - it is 35 km from airport by car.

I have to admit I only knew there was a huge statue of Motherland in Volgograd. I didn't expect the whole ensemble being masterfully arranged on Mamayev Hill. The visit was amazing. Firstly you only see the statue and one set of stairs and as you walk along, many of the other monuments appear before you. Large and very impressive... More

What a breath-taking location packed with Russian sculptures which are so powerful and monumental in scale; I have never seen anything like it. The changing of the guard is well worth a visit in the hall of the eternal flame, a circular building at the top of the site.
