Every statue on this hill has its own story. I had the opportunity to use a guide who explained me every detail of each statue which made it even more impressive as the place already is by itself.

We have seen a number of memorials, but this eclipsed everything we'd seen before. If you walk from bottom to top of the hill up the stairs, every level you reach, there is another set of statues, all the while with the statue of mother Russia dominating the memorial. Very fitting to commemorate the biggest battle in history.

Huge architectonic ensemble, a remembrance of one of the fiercest battles of Great Patriotic War. Turning point of the war. Lot of heroes buried. Silence.

Honestly the most impressive place I have ever been to in my life. So humbling to see where fascism was stopped. Well worth a visit

Main monument in town. You cannot miss it! Better when it's not too hot or snowy as you have to climb many stairs to reach the place.

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.
