“The Best World War Monument in the World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is the largest, most well thought out, and prettiest world war monument that I have seen. I recommend coming at night to see the 5 fountains lit up in red to symbolize the 5 years of blood spilt during the war.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

This park really makes you realise the suffering of the Russian people over the years. There is a particularly moving memorial to the Holacaust and there are lovely views across the city.

“Magnificent views and structures”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

The obelisk stands out at 141.8 metres although our guide insisted it was 1,000 metres (or 1 kilometre) a little over exaggerated.
The monument to St George slaying the Dragon was surprising as one associates St George with England but we were informed that he is a Patron Saint of Russia as well.
The Park on Bow Hill is well laid out and a pleasure to wander around.

“More than expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

What a fantastic experience. Make sure you have time to see it all. Lots of walking but well worth it. The museums new dioramas painted this year are jaw dropping, the film footage is very emotional and the scale of the room listing the hero's stops you in your tracks.

“Kinda mind blowing/numbing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

I had a Russian speaker with me, she translated a lot of the plaques. I can't even imagine what these people went through. Some of the victories were of the, wore the enemy down in moral an munitions type. Meaning took a lot of rounds and didn't concede.
