Soviet War Memorial, Vienna Reviews
Impressive and well kept. Interesting to see a Soviet area monument proudly on display. Nice to see the hat-tip to history, regardless of the local outcome.
Near the end of World War II, Soviet forces of the 3rd Ukrainian Front were ordered by Joseph Stalin to capture Vienna, both for strategic military purposes and for use as a post-war bargaining chip with the Allies. After intense urban fighting, Vienna was captured by the Soviet Forces on 14 April 1945. The Soviet War Memorial in Vienna, more formally known as the Heldendenkmal der Roten Armee (English: Heroes' Monument of the Red Army) is located at Vienna's Schwarzenbergplatz. The semi-circular white marble colonnade partially enclosing a twelve-metre figure of a Red Army Soldier was unveiled in 1945. The Heroes' Monument of the Red Army in Vienna was built to commemorate 17,000 Soviet soldiers who were killed in action during the Vienna Offensive in World War II.
Nice place to be when it is hot weather. Nice fountain. The extraordinary monument to the soviet Solders who fought there life for the freedom from fascists.
Eternal Hail to the heroes of the Soviet Soldiers ( they were different nationalities all together)who fell in battle against the German fascist invaders for the freedom and Independence of the people of Europe. That is translation of what is monument about!
The spring will not work during the winter time. It will be better to be there in the spring time.
