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).

Arthur was a perfect driver and travel companion. As a traveler who often hires private guides and drivers, I am familiar with the services offered in this market. Arthur was timely, polite and very well informed on all Moscow sites. All communications, either written or verbal, were done with an excellent command of the English language. Arthur also took over 100 pictures of my trip and sent me a link to a drop-box so I had access to them. I highly recommend Arthur for any business and leisure travel in and around the Moscow area.
