"(5) - Red Granite Flags" Top 5 Page for this destination Treptower Park Tip by Kakapo2
Treptower Park, Berlin: 18 reviews and 31 photos
A wide alley, bordered by willows, leads from the forecourt to the main field of the complex (see photo of the tip "Soviet War Memorial") in Treptower Park.
You enter this main field passing between two monuments made of red granite. They are stylised flags, hanging towards the alley, symbolising grief – like a person bending the head when in grief.
On the front sides of each flag you see the sculpture of a soldier on his knees, each carrying a machine gun. One of the soldiers is a young guy, the other one looks clearly older. (See detail on photo 2.)
