If you’ve come to Volgograd then of course you are coming here. She is an impressive sight to behold. However beneath this monument lies the final resting place of 35,000 people. Don’t walk on the grass in respect for the dead. Worth visiting/ 10

The tip of her sword is 83 meters high. You'll see her as you approach the city, she stands above everything else. A must see sight in the city.
