History - Cold War, Berlin: 56 reviews and 129 photos

 
 

A few hundred meters after the brandenburg Gate you will find the monument dedicated to the Red Army that conquered Berlin in 1945, marking the downfall of the Third Reich. The monument is a column built in typical monumental Soviet-style with a victorious Red Army soldier on top and tanks and artillery for decoration. It is one of the few remnants of Soviet occupation which ultimately lead to the establishment of an East German communist state.
