Seeing the statue in person after looking at numerous photos leaves you in awe. The gigantic size of the statue is just incredible. There is a war museum located underneath the statue which is incredible as well.

We wandered around the nice parkland surrounding the statue, it was really awe-inspiring, one of those huge Eastern European statue. The rest of the sculptures in the park are also worth looking at, just a nice place to chill out and relax.
