Constructed in honour of Russia’s victory in the Great Patriotic War (World War II), Park Pobedy offers powerful reminders of Russia’s suffering during the war as well as providing views over the skyscrapers of Moscow. The entrance to the park is marked by a long promenade surrounded by fountains, which leads up to a 142-meter high obelisk covered in representations of scenes from the war. Behind the obelisk there’s also a war memorial museum and further on down the hill an exhibition of tanks, war planes and other heavy weaponry. Beyond that the park stretches on into the forest and down towards a tributary of the Moscow River. It’s great for history buffs and also those who enjoy vast green spaces.
