  Victory Park at night
by call_me_rhia

Victory Park is a park dedicated to the men and women who died defending Russia during World War II. Curiously the park is located on the spot where Napoleon had watched Moscow burning.

If you visit during the day there is a crescent-shaped building containing the Great Patriotic War Museum housing war memorabilia and photographs. Opening times are 10 a.m. to 6p.m., closed on Monday.

My suggestion, however, is to visit it at night, when the fountains are lit up - red is the colour, so as to remind one of the blood spilled. It's a very suggestive sight, which you'll share with many moscovites, young and old.

Directions: Metro: Kutuzovskaya, then trolley bus to Victory Park
Theme: People Watching
