Mamayef kurgan is a memorial place of Stalingrad battle in 2nd World War. The first monument from entrance is Stand to death - a statue of soldier who grabs his gun and a granade. It's engraved 'No step backward!'. Ruined walls - walls are standing each side of staircase, it shows soldiers' wills to fight, slogans during the war, and... More

When I was in Russia, back in 1980, I had made my trip, first visiting Moscou and Leningrad ( then it hadn't own the name of Sainkt Petersburg), and after that down by the colossal river of Volga I had seen the Kazan, Volgograd and Rostov. I've already done the accounts about the Kazan and Rostov and it would be... More

Mamaev Kurgan is the must-see attraction of Volgograd. Hugely impressive with amazing views. At night time, Rodina Mat' is even more spectacular, however, the surrounding areas are dark and there are many steps that you can't see until you're right on top of them. Also, visit the Stalingrad Café to the back of the statue. It has a very impressive... More

Volgograd is huge, but for such a large city it has little to offer. However, these monuments are an absolute must. They're worth the trip alone. Having just a passing knowledge of history, I was aware of the siege of Stalingrad and the amazing efforts of the soldiers/residents in fighting off the Nazi invasion. Even then, I was moved by...

This is a must see for a trip to Russia. This hill is a moving spiritual experience, especially when you think of all the lives spent in the battle for Stalingrad.

It was a beautiful day in September 2014 when we visited this historic site and it's a place that is almost beyond words. The view from the top is spectacular with a commanding vista of Volgograd and the Volga. If you have the opportunity visit at night too as it's even more impressive in the dark with the spotlights amped... More

Never thought I would have the opportunity to visit such a place. An outstanding experience for anyone with any interest in WW2

The layout and design of the memorial park is awesome. My favourite part was the two walls depicting the periods of the Battle of Stalingrad - 'Not one step back' and 'only forward'. Also fascinating to stand at the peak looking across the city imagining the battle from that position.
