The statue stands out, the place around offers great city view and the memorial for the World War 2, and as you walk and explore a lot come to site as old tanks, airplanes, missels. It is a must go place.

The monument is worth to see along with the park around it. The view is great as you can see the whole city, but be prepared for a quite long walk.

I am not a fan of communist statues and this is definitely one of them. You can't miss it even if you would want to. It's absolutely huge and on top of a hill. We walked to it once, quite a steep climb via stairs....More
