As always Soviet monument dramatic huge and we'll constructed. A tribute for all that fought in ww2 1941 to 1945. A very hard battle well won by a patriotic force. Worth the visit.

I visited Victory Square, and it's worth a quick stop and a few pictures. It is located on a busy avenue, so it's best to find parking elsewhere or take the underground (subway). Minsk is located with military history, symbolism, and remembrance. This is a...More
