“Cold War Awesomeness”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Constructed in 1945, this sobering memorial was built to commemorate the around 2,000 fallen Soviet troops that were buried here. But beyond that, it is a beautiful representation of Socialist Realism and Socialist Classical Architecture. So, for those that are fascinated by the Cold War, this is definitely a must see. The presence of T-34 tanks and ML-20 152mm gun-howitzer artillery pieces are also a plus.

The memorial is also really easy to get to. It's located in the Tiergarten, somewhat near the US Embassy, which is itself located near Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag.

“A good memorial to huge loss.”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

Well maintained, easy to get around, interesting and yet provokes sadness at the level of loss of life and effort it commemorates.

Close to other attractions, Reichstag, Jewish Memorial, Brandenburg Tor etc.
