This memorial hall with a huge eternal flame, lined with names and guarded by immaculate sentries holding WWII rifles, is all extremely sobering. The change of the guards, performed by slow goose-stepping soldiers, whose crashing feet echo the hall, itself filled with quiet eerie music,...More

Incredibly innovative design of this round building makes it a must see. Part of the area around the Motherland Statue. There is no admission charge for any of this. If you are in the area you must see this.
