Victory Park on Poklonnaya Hill is a tribute to the memory of soldiers who fought in World War II, and the victory that was bought so dearly by Soviet people. Moscow suffered a lot in 1941–1945: hunger, aerial attacks, and daily back-breaking labour. Hundreds of thousands of Muscovites died during those black years. The victims of that dreadful war are commemorated in the colossal sculptures, the Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War with its collection of military equipment, memorial avenues and religious objects in Victory Park. Picturesque greenery makes the park a wonderful place for a walk, and the wide avenues and paths make it Moscow’s rollerblading stomping ground.
Five terraces making up the alley symbolize five years of war and 225 fountains are equal to the number of weeks that the war lasted.
The huge and picturesque park is a great place to relax, to roller skate, to skateboard, to go for a bike ride or to join a sports group.
