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.

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.
