Photo and description
The most heroic and large-scale attraction of the city of Saratov is the Victory Park.
The park zone was founded in 1975 on the most panoramic place of Saratov - Sokolovaya Gora, by ordinary citizens , in whose hearts the memory of the heroes of the Great Patriotic War and respect for those who passed the whole war to the end remained. In 1982, a 40-meter-high monument "Cranes" was erected, which is visible almost anywhere in the city.
Now the Victory Park is a many kilometers open-air museum of military glory; this is the memory of 130 thousand Saratov residents who volunteered for the front, this is more than 130 exhibits of military equipment, which is a fleet of combat vehicles (aviation, artillery, tanks, armored personnel carriers, BMD, BMP, missile systems, multiple launch rocket systems); this is the Saratov State Museum of Military Glory (documents, letters from the front and photographs, personal belongings, military awards, weapons and other military relics of that time); it is a national village with houses, yurts, castles, where national dishes are traditionally prepared on May 9 and creates a festive atmosphere; these are five observation platforms, each of them offers a variety of panoramas of the city, the Volga, and the surrounding area.
Saratov Victory Park can be called unique; military equipment collected from all over the country, 66 species of seedlings grown into large trees and beautiful shrubs, an eternal flame near the monument of glory and of course a beautiful cannon whose volley at noon on May 9 every year reminds of the great Victory.
