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'm so glad we found Arthur online. He was extremely professional, cordial and such a pleasure to be around. Arthur picked us up at the airport and drove us to the hotel. We spent the entire next day together sightseeing and learning not only about the city but also about Russian history. On the following day, we did the night tour, which was amazingly beautiful, I highly recommend it. Arthur was always on time and never rushed us from one sight to another. His car, a new Honda CRV, is very comfortable and clean. For non-smokers, this is the car for you as I didn't detect a trace of cigarette smell.
During our tours, he also took some amazing pictures, some of which were so beautiful that could be used as postcards.
I will definitely recommend Arthur to all my friends and family and will contact him again anytime I come back to Moscow.
Thank you Arthur for an amazing time in Moscow.
