  • this is really nicly build soviet monument of the WWIII victory ofthe Soviet Union over Nazi Austria and Germany.

  • On my way from my Hotel Nh Wien Belvedere to get to my Hop on off bus at the State Opera House was really quite as it was still early around 8 -10am. It's got to be a must see.

  • The monument is very beautiful and tasteful for all those who lost their lives. The monument is written in Russian and German. Would be nice to have a translation in English for visitors to have a better respect and understanding of this importance. I think this is a must see for history fans.

  • This is a piece of history that takes one straight back to the second world war! Not something fantastic, especially compared to the numerous historical monuments in and around Vienna, but this is historically significant. For example, I did not know that Vienna was captured by Russian forces under Stalin in 1945, till I saw this Soviet War Memorial. The soldier (in the monument) wears a helmet and holds a Soviet flag and a Soviet coat of arms.

  • Very special and beautiful monument, In memory of the fallen Russian soldiers during the 2nd world war...
