This is a very beautiful square in large well maintained gardens with fountains and houses poignant sculptures and monuments. There is also a small quaint church there with golden globes and stunning inside.

The monuments are awe inspiring and the museum is great too. Should spend 2-3 hours, the museum has war scenes depicted in a very realistic manner. It is also a lesson in History and patriotism.

Victory Square is beautifully designed to be a memorial to the Great Patriotic War. There are beautiful fountains, sculptures and a museum. At one end of the square is a obelisk that measures 150 meters high. This square is outside most of the attractions in Moscow (Red Square and the Kremlin) but is well worth a visit.

Very large square in front of Victory Park, yet almost not big enough for all the people coming for Victory Day firework. Amazing site.

It's an amazing and vast place, including in itself the large park and square, labelled with the name of "Victory". All here, we had perceived was, still is and will be forever with the very important significance, for the russian people, for the foreigners also. In every location of the park and the square, there is something, that recalls You... More

When I reached the Victory Square I couldn't believe my eyes. It was a snowy day and everything was covered in snow, which made the scene all the more dramatic. It was a long walk from the beginning of the Square to the tall monument at the end of it. And there were fountains, as well as wall monuments on... More

If you are a person who like history, it's one of the places that you should visit in Moscow. It's a huge square and park that you can easily spend around 3 hours without visiting the museum. Go and take amazing pictures. Really recommend it but not on a rainy day.

We spent 3 hours at the grounds and the museum but really we needed all day. the grounds are fascinating and the museum is by far the most outstanding we have ever visited. The sheer details to all the items in the museum are next to none! A must if you go to Moscow.

Visit with a guide if you want to learn more about Russia and WW2. A great place to walk and enjoy a quiet afternoon.
