We had a whistle stop here just to take photos but it was very thought provoking and very nice to see that these soldiers are remembered.

Have seen many war memorials around the world but this one is quite moving as it remembers recent history. Worth a visit if just to think for a while.

Another Russian War Memorial, but like all Russian War Memorials extremely well and tastefully done. What does make this memorial different is that commemorates those who died in the disastrous Afghan war as opposed to WWII. Moving ambience about the place.

This monument is nothing special. But its located in a nice small park. There are a few trees and some nice places to site. I think its worth at least one visit.

A very unusual monument which is strangely emotional. You must go and see it. Spend a few minutes reflecting on what it symbolises

I don't know why, but when I visited there I felt pretty sad right the way. All of sudden I felt for those who lost their families in war. When I left this place, I prayed for peace in my heart.

Here they have the ability to make impressive memorials. In my country especially the new ones memorials/statues are strange, you do not know what they stand for unlike here. This one was touching. You should go and see it.

I wouldn't like to say that this place is one of the greatest places in this city, but I'm glad that we have such monuments. This war isn't so popular and we remember it quite seldom. In Yekaterinburg this monument looks even bigger than monument...More

A memorial I will always remember. Sombre and reflective thoughts in recognition of the millions of brave men and women who lost their lives trying to make this world a better place. God bless them all!
