I have written over 180 reviews on Trip Advisor and believe in the power of feedback. I hope you find my review helpful. As someone who studied WW2 and Russian history in college, this was a dream come true. These monuments are powerful and emotional. I only wish I had brought a guide book to explain some of these monuments.... More

An impressive statement of Russian patriotism. The giant statue "Motherland Calls" is the highlight. You have to be here to fully understand.

This monument are constructed on place where the most severe battle took place during the World War II. During the excavation it was found more than 100 kg bullet per 1 square meter! The main statue is called "Motherland Calls!" It is two times bigger than renowned sculptures of Liberty in New York or Christ in Rio.

These statues greet you as you make it up the second set of stairs. The large water feature makes these statues on the edge make the scene even more impressive with the main statue of Mother Russia on the hill. Can look lovely at night with a slow exposure shot.

The Mamayev Hill should probably be one review rather than one for each part of the hills various monuments. They are powerful reminders of a proud people who suffered greatly in the war but came out victorious against all the odds. So these various monuments are quite rightly a moving tribute. Startling stuff.

Enough said in the title. Besides there is really nothing else to see in Volgograd anyway. Reserve at lease 1/2 a day. Expect a lots of walking..

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

It is hard to be there. I can not pick any truthful words to describe the feelings I had on Mamayev Kurgan...
