Victory Park


Victory Park is a memorial complex dedicated to Russia’s victory over Nazi Germany. It is located in the historic area of Moscow known as Poklonnaya Hill, which means "Bow Hill". It's one of the highest spots in Moscow - in old times travellers approaching the capital from the west used to climb onto the hill to get a beautiful panoramic view of the city, and would bow to Moscow. The hill did not attract only peaceful travellers. In 1812, it was the spot where Napoleon foolishly expected the keys to the Kremlin to be brought to him by Russians. This part of Moscow is connected to the country's military history. This is why after the end of the Second World War, Victory Park was laid out here.
