Stalingrad 

Mamayev Hill, located in the Hero’s Square of Stalingrad (a/k/a “Heart of the City“), was established in 1967.  It includes six statues, which are made of reinforced concrete and each are 6 meters high:

Sculpture 1: The Last Grenada

Sculpture 2: Help Me, Sister

Sculpture 3: Striped Death

Sculpture 4: Heroism of the Soviet Commanding Officers

Sculpture 5: Two Soviet Soldiers with Standard

Sculpture 6: Symbol of the Victory

The Hall of Valour is arranged around a hall, with 34 lowered banners of red smalt.  The names of more than 7,000 men, who died in the defense of Stalingrad, are listed.  Sad, gentle music is played softly in the background.  The guards change every hour.  The Hall of Valour is guilt in the form of a cylinder and is partially sunk into the ground.

  The Motherland is the biggest statue in the world; a mother standing guard over her country, her raised sword held high.  The sword is made from stainless steel, which is 29 meters long and weighs 14 tons.
