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).

I visited Moscow with my parents in early April 2012 and we hired Arthur to show us around the city for about 2.5 days. We were all very pleased with his services as his English is excellent, he is reliable and he knows the city in and out. He not only knows all the major attractions that most first-time tourists want to visit, but also helped us customize the tour to some of our own interests - including guiding us to Jewish sites of interest, and also a fascinating site for exploring Russian military aviation history! On top of this, Arthur's photographs are professional quality - the photos he took of us at St. Basil Cathedral and of various viewpoints on our evening tour are particularly special. In fact they are the nicest photos I have from any trip in recent memory! Many thanks again from my parents and me!!
