Victory Parks is located at the top of a hill overlooking the city of Saratov. You can enjoy a beautiful panorama of the city from this point.The entire park is built to commemorate about 177,00 Saratovites who died in World War II.
As you approach to tall tower in front of you, you'll pass large marble stones with the names of those Saratovites that fought and lost their lives in World War II. At the top of the hill there is a large memorial that reaches into the sky. It depicts large cranes flying high in the sky. This monument is about 40 meters high and can be seen virtually from any point in the town.
Situated here is The Museum of Victory. This is simply an outside museum displaying some equiptment used in World War II. You can see boats, trains, tanks and other weapons as well.
If you are looking for a peaceful place and/or you are interested in the history of World War II it is worth visiting.
