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.

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

The biggest statue named "Motherland calls". It's high 93 metres included pedestal. This high not randomly. Its same as Statue of Liberty in New York. But its pedestal 47 metres... 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.
