On our trip across Russia from Vladivostok to Moscow and then back to Beijing following the Silk Road saw many truly spectacular WWII war memorials, something the Russians truly do excel at. However nothing came close to the Mamayev Hill Monuments in Volgograd (once better known as Stalingrad) for shear scale and brilliance. The whole memorial complex, and it truly... More

this is "must see" for Russians and foreigners. If you are foreigner you have to have local guide who will provide you with stories of this place. It has not that much to show without story behind this place

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.
