Volgograd, page 11

Location: Volgograd, Russia

Once known as Stalingrad, this city was the scene of one of the major battles of World War Two. The site of the battle of Stalingrad has been turned into the Mamayev Hill Open Air War Memorial.

Mother of Russia at the top of the hill dominates wherever you look

Memorial church

The cylindrical Hall of Glory with the guarded eternal flame beneath a circular hole in the ceiling which casts the all seeing eye on the memorial plaques of the inscriptions of the names of the fallen.

The Grieving Mother or the Statue of Sorrow above the Lake of Tears

The wall of heroes

Hourly changing of the guard in front of the all seeing eye cast by the circular hole in the ceiling above the eternal flame.

Statues of the soldiers in the rank...

The Heroes Square

The walls of battle

...some commemorating the females in the army

The statue of Standing to the Death, built on the site of the last man standing in the battle, here symbolically guarding the motherland.

Detail of the low relief work
