Soviet War Memorial in Treptower Park

June 11, 2016

One of three war memorials built by the Soviets to commemorate their soldiers killed in the Battle of Berlin, this one is in Treptower Park. I always assumed the memorial consisted only of some typical socialist realist sculpture and was amazed to see how imposing it was, and that it consisted of an entire landscape. Although it was a massive propaganda piece, as these things usually are, I have already visited it several times as I am quite mesmerized by it.
