The Moscow triumphal arch, erected in wood in 1814 and in marble in 1827 to a design by Osip Bove, was relocated and reconstructed on Poklonnaya Gora in 1968.

A loghouse, where Kutuzov presided over the Fili conference which decided to surrender Moscow to the enemy, was designated a national monument. The huge panorama "Battle of Borodino" by Franz Roubaud (1910-12) was installed on Kutuzovski prospect (Kutuzov Avenue) in 1962. A monument to Kutuzov was opened in 1973.
