Completed 1913 in memory of the 22,000 Russians who perished in the "Völkerschlacht" (Nations' Battle) against Napoleon and for the liberation of Germany. 300,000 Russians, Swedes, Austrians, Prussians battled and vanquished Napoleon's forces - at a loss of 50,000 soldiers! Excellent example of the ecclestiastic architecture being pursued in St. Petersburg, Moscow at the time.

We decided to go there at night after seeing a few nice pictures but it is currently covered by scaffoldings. Not so far from there, less than five min.by car there is the Volkerschlachtdenkmal which also worths a night visit to take some pictures.
