“Somber yet beautiful”
Review of Great War Memorial

Great War Memorial
Ranked #11 of 201 things to do in Kharkiv
Attraction details
Reviewed November 6, 2015

This memorial is somber in the purpose, the grounds are kept beautiful. There are stone walks leading to trails if you enjoy walking in forest.

Starting from the road an impressive pink granit paved alley shows you the way to the Memorial itself . The place is solemn and instantly commands attention and respect , A special touch by the designer of the place is the sound - intented to be the sound of a heart - augments the already impressive atmosphere of the place

Visited back in Oct 2013 when it wasn't nearly as dangerous, this great memorial was dedicated to those who perished during the Nazi-Soviet war back in 1941. Kharkov, as a hero city, had many civilians who were either killed or captured by the Nazis(( That was quite historical. As a commeration of our heroes, this memorial was created. Wonderful!
