"The Russians have landed" Vienna Favorite Tip by iandsmith

Vienna General: 612 reviews and 771 photos

  A standout memorial
by iandsmith

Favorite thing: In the last moments of my Vienna excursion I chanced upon this monument. "What could it be for" thought I.
My enquiry led to someone telling me it was in memory of the war dead from World War II, in particular, the Russians.
It certainly is a standout. As to its popularity, well, you'll have to ask some Austrians about that!
