Square itself is not really large, but it has very nice fountain by which you can relax. Also, famous monument to the Red army is located at this square as well.

The platz is dominated by the Soviet War Memorial and fountain. The monument is very much in the Soviet style and commemorates the capture of the city in April 1945. The fountain is quite pretty as well. It's worth a quick look and walk around.

Huge monument, as Russians have only like those. :D A bit away from the city center. You wont miss much if you do not have enough time to visit. So if your trip is short skip this.

It is a large, pretty square with some very interesting buildings around, although the Red Army's monument doesn't quite fit well within it. The western face of the square is the prettiest I believe.
