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 recently enjoyed four days in Moscow. Although we are very independant travellers and had done a great deal of reading we were very pleased to have the additional assistance of Arthur while he coped with the Moscow traffic and also his assistance in getting us to and aboard the train to St Petersburg. We had a marvelous driving tour of Moscow by night with Arthur before boarding the train at midnight. We highly recommend Arthur's services.
