This memorial is a very fitting tribute to the members of the Red Army who died during the most significant battle of World War 2. I had always wanted to see it, and I was not disappointed. The Motherland Calls statue is a masterpiece. It towers beautifully over the Mamaev Kurgan hill where thousands of Red Army soldiers found their final resting place. It is a very emotional experience to be present at this place knowing that so many men gave their lives here in defence of our freedom. The changing of the guard takes place every hour at the eternal flame which is located in the Hall of Glory just before you ascend the pathway which leads to the Motherland Calls monument. This memorial was the main reason I went to Volgograd & it was an experience I will never forget. I have to say that when it comes to remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice in defending their Motherland, the Russians have got it right.
