The climb to the top involves two paths that go in opposite directions each of over 240 steps and there is no handrail so stick to the inside if you... More

Erected to commemorate the liberation of Belarus from the Nazi occupants in summer 1944 this mound today greets visitors coming to Minsk from MSQ Airport and Moscow.
