Victory Square on the Hill

Victory Square on the Hill

The Victory Park is a park to honor the millions who died and those who survived World War II. It was the edge of Victory Park on Poklonnaya Hill (the Bowing Hill) that Napoleon stood in 1812, looking at the Kremlin and awaiting the keys to the city of Moscow, which would symbolize the city's surrender to the invader. The huge complex was finally completed in 1995 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Soviet Union's WWII victory. It consists of an obelisk, a large museum, a church, several monuments, an open-area exposition of military vehicles and fortifications, and a group of fountains which is red-lighted at nights (like fountains of blood Russian soldiers shed in battle-fields fighting against Germans during the Great Patriotic War).

We were given Arthurs name by another family from Ireland who had used his services during their adoption. We decided to try Aruthur and were happily surprised. We had 4 people plus luggage and he arranged for his brother to also come and pick us up at the airport. We also used Arthur for a tour of the city. If we had met Arthur on our first trip we would have seen much more of Moscow. What a pity!
