Used Google maps to navigate there - free parking and easy to walk around the monuments. Lots of locals - many trying out roller skates. Great views of Murmansk and the eternal flame/memorial is very evocative.

Murmansk was a critical port for Russia in World War 2. The Germans made a major effort to capture the city, and were (fortunately) turned back by the defenders. They deserve the massive monument overlooking Kola Bay. Easiest way to get here is by road....More

It was s cold dull day but this did not stop a wedding party from using this as a back drop to their photographs. We did not spend long here, just enough time to take photos & enjoy the views.

An impressively large statue with an eternal flame. All of the explanations are in Russian. Visitors still must be accompanied by a guide wherever you go. A little less restrictive than my previous visits to Russia A great view of the city from here.

The Alyosha monument has superb views of Murmansk and features the second largest statue of a Russian soldier in the country. Local newly weds brace the cold and wind to have their wedding photos taken there.
