This beautiful park was opened in 1995 to commemorate the 50 year anniversary of Russia's victory over Nazi Germany during the "Great Patriotic War" (WWII). The war left Russia in shambles, but its struggle to persevere and push forward created a great deal of national consciousness amongst its citizens. This park illustrates and immortalizes the brave tales and the heroic people who fought for their land. A central museum, memorial complex, orthodox church and monument of victory are spread amongst an abundance of lakes, flower gardens and grasslands. Be sure to check out the Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War, which is located in the western section of the park.
This is the most dramatic war memorial in the world. Simple as that. A life changing experience for me.
It is hard to put in in words.
I will never forget visiting this place.
When you go to Moscow, this is a must.
