It is not as easy to get to this monument by public transport, so be ready for a 30-minutes walking from the bus stop Gagarina to this place. Nevertheless, it is worth it. The monument looks incredible! Moreover, you can make grand photos of the...More

This huge monument is visible from points across Murmansk and is probably one of the few must-see sites when you are there. It's quite a long trek from the city but still possible to walk (I managed it). Great views over the bay and Murmansk....More

It's on the hillside (sopka) of Murmansk. You can see a great view of Kol'skiy gulf and city. There are also the highest sculpture of Russian soldier Aliosha. Memory of 2-nd World War (1941-1945). You must see it. Unbreathtaking. Millions of Russian people stayed to...More

This is an impressive concrete statue just outside the city centre. Take trolley bus 4 or any other buses that can stop at the Lake. You'll see the statue on the way. The hill on which the statue sits overlooks the city. Nice on a...More
