“typical ”
Review of Great War Memorial

Great War Memorial

Typical seems like such a lame word to use, but in terms of Ukraine, this is very typical. Nearly every Ukrainian village/town/city has a WW2 memorial, many of them really big. I like the somber feeling, the way people actually take time to think about and honour what happened. There are several side memorials as you walk down the main pink path.

If you want to see interesting War Memorial with silence and nice forests around this is your place. There is an alltime burning fire front of the "Mother" statue.

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
