'The Motherland Calls' Sculpture, Volgograd

4.9
See one of the enduring icons of Soviet Russia at 'The Motherland Calls' Sculpture, a towering monument dedicated to one of the country's great World War II triumphs--the battle of Stalingrad. Climb the 200 steps, symbolizing the 200 days of the battle, which lead from the bottom of the hill to the base of the monument. The sculpture represents a woman raising a sword in an act of defiance while extending her other arm in a calling gesture. Measuring 85 m (279 ft) from the tip of the sword to the top of the plinth, it is the world's tallest statue of a woman. The model for the statue was a native of the city who is still recognized for her resemblance to it. Notice how the plinth leans to the side due to seeping groundwater.

  • I was in Berlin, was near the monument "warrior-Liberator", where a soldier with a child in his hands lowers the "Sword of victory." The monument made an impression.  The sculpture "Homeland-mother" with the raised sword produces even greater emotions. A grandiose monument, nothing more to say.

  • Specially brought the family to show the places where the victory was forged. The spirit captures when you see it all alive. It is better to take a tour, it will tell in detail the facts and symbols of buildings on the Maman mound. The tour is better to take over earlier. Or you can join in already passing). It is necessary to visit and bow down.
