  Russian war memorial
by barryg23

During the Cold War, Russian security guards used to stand here at the Russian War Memorial on 24-hour watch. The memorial is now maintained by the German givernment I believe, and it's certainly an impressive structure. Tanks, supposedly from WW2, stand on either side of the monument, behind which there is a path leading to the Tiergarten.
