Right in the centre of the capital, two “T 34” tanks flank the bronze statue of a red army soldier who is carrying his rifle over his shoulder. The columns behind him bear texts with the names of fallen Soviet soldiers, while the graves of about 2,500 soldiers are in the rear of the memorial. This memorial was erected in 1945 on the north side of today’s Straße des 17. Juni near the Reichstag to honour the fallen soldiers of the red army. Further Soviet memorials can be found in the Schönholzer Heide and in the Treptower Park.
