A lot of history

From the church to the WW2. From the house of God to Soviet monuments. Just few steps. Do not forget to visit a Museum of Kazakh National music instruments.

Monuments to WWII heroes and 28 heroes of Panilov who sacrificed their lives. Set in the beautiful park, we were there in winter with snow covered trees. Also the Zenkov Cathedral is in the park.

Impressive huge monument to second world war heroes who died protecting Moscow. The sign says “Russia is vast, but there's nowhere to retreat — behind us Moscow.”

A good place to stumble into. Wonder around the park after a look around at the Zhenkov cathedral and visit the imposing monuments.

We visited the site in a heavy snowfall. The white snow and the dark bark of the trees provided an appropriate backdrop to the war memorial. The snow highlighted the stark outlines of the powerful sculptures. The stillness could be felt.

if you're facing the Zenkov Church, keep going behind it and you come to the back of this giant sculpture commemorating the Khazach heroes. The USSR map is represented behind the central soldier, i learned after the fact - would've been fun to figure it out there on the spot. A military ceremony took place while I was there and... More

Stepping in front of this towering monument, there is an immediate sense of calm. The long raised cement slab has an eternal flame at the far end and is a key location for wedding photos. The monument is a symbol of strength and longevity for newly weds we were told. The surrounding trees nestles the monument into its surroundings, the... More

Panfilov Park is a rather nice and cosy public space where all manner of people come to hang out and escape the city frenzy: you'll find the churchgoers, and the skater boys; the couples seeking privacy and the middle-aged walking their dogs; the lone miscreant, and the energetic group of students; the trendy, the artistic, the religious.

A very good example of a Soviet era WWII war memorial, this one named after General Panfilov who died, together with 28 of his men, defending Moscow during the WWII. I have a soft spot for Soviet era War Memorials (the best obviously being at Stalingrad) and this one doesn't disappoint, contains huge (almost brutal) bronze statues, stone reliefs and... More
