It is one of those places that was designed to impress guests by it’s might and nothing else. Warning: if you are not fit as in ready to walk minimum 2-3 km with steps just for the initial walk around or if you have an elderly person in your group, I do not recommend this visit. It’s design goes against all rules of architecture. Boasting massive wide open spaces and fully covered in stone, with no trees or shade in the summer and alternatively high winds that penetrate to the bone in the winter, it makes one feel small and vulnerable with no atmosphere whatsoever. Much more touching would be to visit a Flame of the Eternal soldier near the Kremlin wall. Exhausting and poorly organized it has very low number of visitors for the size, advertisements of “Get your family and go to Victory park” are plastered all over the city to try and lure crowds to this site. Taking the money invested and building an intimate museum with an outdoor garden to sit and express gratitude for those that lost their lives protecting their country in Word War II and donating the rest of it to the improvement of lives of the few veterans that remain alive to me would be a much better decision. Not to mention just how much forest was removed to create this monstrosity. Anyway, there are many much more worthwhile authentic places to visit if you are a World War the II buff. Notice, i did not visit the museum itself got exhausted getting there.

This obelisk is inside the vast Victory Park. The Victory Monument is on one of the highest points in Moscow. It is visible even from a far distance.

Were lucky to visit the monument a couple of days prior to 9 May for the Victory day festivities. Tulips were blooming lavishly in contrast to the water fountains portraying the blood flown during WWII. Quite a sight to visit at night with red lights illuminating the fountains. Monument in centre along the fountains in the form of a very tall obelisk. Quite impressive with much history ....

The Victory monument is the central attraction in Peabody Park. It is visible from any section of the huge Park. It is the tallest monument in Russia, at 141.8 meters. Each 10 cm represents a day of WW2 totalling 1,418 days. It is reached by walking directly on the central path past the fountains. The monument is in two sections. The lower section is a sculpture of Saint George slaying a dragon, and the tall obelisk directly behind.The dragon has images of parts of German swastikas on it's body and wings. We thought that this sculpture was brilliant, particularly the dragons head falling off at the end of George's spear. The obelisk is in the shape of a bayonet, and has bronze war related reliefs all the way to the top. There are names of Soviet cities where the war was fought at intervals on the obelisk. Near to the top of the bayonet, is a sculpture of Nike, the Greek Goddess of speed strength and victory., Nike holds a golden wreath of laurel leaves in her right hand. Below Nike are two angels blowing golden trumpets. Nike is also atop the triumphal arch, near to the entrance of the park, in a chariot, drawn by six horses.This monument was opened in 1995, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the end of the war. The architect is Z Tsereteli. The Victory Park is easily reached from the city center, by taking the subway blue Line 3 from Kitay-Gorod to Park Pobedy (Victory Park), which is three stops
