Victory Square is a genuine Soviet-era square. See the 38 m (124 ft) high granite monument dedicated to the millions who died in the Great Patriotic War--World War II. Watch for the red star and the old Soviet coat of arms on its top, and pay attention to the sculpture of Lenin on the side of the monument. The face of Stalin, which used to be there, was converted into Lenin's ear. An eternal flame flickers at the base of the obelisk, making it a popular spot for photographs. You can discover more about the square and its role in Belarusian history in the museum under the square. The main entrance to famous Gorky Park is also on this square.

  • One of the city's most important squares. Independence Avenue passes through it. Not very large, but very important area. It is not difficult to guess what is not difficult to guess, in the name of victory on Nazi Germany.

  • When we visited the site in August, the statue was covered by scaffolding and fences all around. But it will certainly be nice when they get ready. Select another POI instead until it's finished.
