Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just a stop for the true winner of the eastern front in WW2. It was perhaps the only statue with flowers.

This monument to Zhukov stands in front of the Headquarters of the Ural Military District building on Lenin Avenue. Zukhov was head of the Urals Military District between 1948-1953. He took over the post, shortly after having a heart attack. The statue shows him on horseback, with the horse rearing. The monument was installed in 1995, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the end of WW2. On the sides of the oval shaped base, are a number of the divisions which he commanded. We recognised two that related to the red army and WW1. The building itself is an attraction, and has reliefs at the top, of tank and planes, with stars at either end. To the right of the building on Bazhova Street, you can view a few pieces of military equipment through the fence.

Georgy Zhukov is the most decorated Russian soldier. He was brought up in poverty in a small district known as Strevkolka, an hour from Moscow. He moved to Moscow at a young age to work as apprentice to a furrier, but was conscripted to WW1 when he turned eighteen. He joined the cavalry and won awards for his bravery. After WW1, he joined the Red Army, and fought in the Russian civil war. After the war he was appointed head of a cavalry division, and eventually was in charge of a mechanised and cavalry division in the late 1930's. He led the battle of Khalk Gol in Mongolia against the Japanese, and was victorious, mainly through modern use of tank warfare.

He was soon appointed Marshal of the Soviet Union. The start of the war went badly for the Soviets, and Zhukov resigned.He was transferred to Leningrad, then recalled to Moscow when the Germans were literally on the doorstep. His unique methods of defence included the use of all residents to assist in defence to stall the Germans. This was the first time in WW2 that the Germans were halted, and he was able to counter attack when the Siberian forces arrived. He went on to achieve success in Stalingrad, Kursk and his men were the first to hoist the Soviet flag on the Reichstag in Germany. He accepted the German order of surrender and inspected the troops on horseback in the Moscow Victory parade.

After the war, he was not given many important assignments due mainly to his popularity with the people, and he was in ill health. He died in 1974, and a village near to where he was born, was renamed Zhukov in his honour. We had visited monuments to Zhukov in Omsk, Irkutsk and Moscow. We were also able to visit his house museum in Strelkovka and museum dedicated to him in Zhukov, both an hour from Moscow.He remains popular today, and this monument always has floral tributes.A visit to the nearby Military museum would assist in understanding more about his exploits. A picture of him is also placed an the wall of the Surovov Military Academy.

This area is easiest reached by tram # 4,8,13,15,18 or 26.

One of the rare thing for me was to see the statue of Marshal Zhukov. It was very impressive and it is a person you have heard about and suddenly learn more about.

Again, if you are on a guided tour of the city, then this statue to Zhukov is certainly worth a visit. If you are with a guide, then hopefully you will get some information about him. Otherwise, it’s simply a statue.

Looks impressive. And much more impressive than the monument in Moscow. This is a monument to the winner. Behind there is a beautiful building in the constructivist style, it is also worth a look. Nearby is a museum with an ancient idol.
