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).

WOW...if you are looking for the BEST tour guide...Arthur is your man!!!! We had a wonderful time touring Moscow with Arthur and he is so knowledgeable about Moscow and his country in general. He set up private tours for us, everything was amazing!One of our favorites was Christ the Savior Cathedral where Arthur had set up a private tour of the bell towers. It was right before services so they were hand ringing the huge bells...it was beautiful! I could go on and on but there is not near enough room in the little box to tell you what a fabulous job Arthur did and how he made our stay in Moscow the best it could have been...memories for a lifetime! There is NO need to look any further for a tour guide, book with Arthur, he is the BEST!
