Nice and big May 23, 2013
Park Podeby is located not far away from the red sqaure, you can reach the park by metro with the blue line from the red square. The metro station near the park has the name 'park pobedy' (so that is easy :P)

This parc is a kind of big monument for the people who died during the second world war. The parc consist of a big square with on both sides fountains. At the end of the square is a big kind of spire with some statue in front of it. Just behind the spire is a big building with a museum.

At the park there are several litlle shops and little restaurants so you can buy some food and drink and relax in the parc. During mine visit to Moscow there were also some attraction located near the big building in the back of the square.

Park Pobedy Apr 05, 2010
Park Pobedy, translates as Victory Park, and is a memorial to the Great Patriotic War, as the Russians refer to WWII.

Only about 4 stops on the metro from the city centre,around Red Square, and the metro station is handily called Park Pobedy, and is one of the more impressive stations on the Moscow system.

On the way out of the metro take the exit to the left and it bring you up in the central reservation od a 6 lane road. You will find the Triumphal Arch here. Built to mark the defeat of Napoleon and the French army in 1812, it was moved here in the late 60's.

Back down to the underpass and up into Park Pobedy, you immediately see the War Memorial and the column in front of it.

The site for the park was designated in the early 60's, but nothing much was really done. Plans were drawn up but it wasn't until the approach of the 50th anniversary of the end of the war that the park was completed in 1995. This is meant to be a scaled down version of the original plans :O

There is an extensive paved walkway up to it called the Years Of War, and it is split into sections for each of the 5 years the Soviet Union was involved in the war, starting in 1941.

There are, spaced out, along the left hand side monuments to Soviet Marshals, that are topped off with carved flags.

Behind these you'll find the The Church Of St George The Victorious, which was the first new church completed after the end of communist rule.

Just across from that is a staue to commemorate the vitims of the war.

As tou appraoch the main area, Victors Place, you realis just how big the obelisk is. Standing at about 150m it has the Greek godess Nike at the top. At the bottom of the obelisk is a statue of St George slaying the dragon. The obelisk itself is carved all the way up and incorporates the name sof the towns where battles were fought.

The War Memorial itself is that big I had to walk practically all the way to the road to be able to fit the whole thing into a picture.

Behind the War Memorial there is a museum with many exhibits from the war, but never got to go in as it is closed on Mondays.

Behind this the park opens out, and there are heavy guns,tanks and planes set out in it.

Certainly the most impressive of the war memorials I've seen. Listed it as free, as it is to walk about the park, but I reckon there would be a charge to get into the museum

Yes, this one and the one in Volgograd are probably two most impressive War Memorials in Russia!
