On Monday evening, we went with Micah’s mom to Victory Park (Парк Победы – Park Pobedy), which was also a first time for Micah and I as well.
“The memorial complex was inaugurated May 9 1995, to the 50th anniversary of the Great Victory (the holiday of victory of the USSR over Nazi Germany in World War II 1,941). In the warmer months is a place of mass festivals.”
“Shrine of St. George on Poklonnaya Hill in honor of the Victory in Great Patriotic War, was laid next to the memorial on Poklonnaya Hill May 9, 1994.”
