Impressive War Monument

Victory Square features the celebrated Monument to the Heroic Defenders of Leningrad and was constructed in 1975 during the Soviet era. With its 48-metre obelisk and underground memorial hall, the monument is a major tourist destination for visitors to the city.

The elegant square is a remarkable place to stroll. The monument's depiction of soldiers who defended the city during the Siege of Leningrad is realistic and haunting. If you are traveling to or from the Pulkovo Airport, you'll want to stop and visit this moving memorial and explore Victory Square itself.
