The Victory Memorial Park is dedicated to the victory over Nazis in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945. It was opened in 1995 to mark the 50th anniversary of the victory.

The main monument of Victory is an obelisk with a bronze statue of Nika, the goddess of Victory.

Behind it there is the Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War. Its exhibits tell about the key battles, the heroic deeds of rank-and-file soldiers and prominent military leaders and officers, the war effort of people in the rear and the joint activities of the Allies that brought to the unconditional surrender of the Nazi Germany in May of 1945.

The Memorial complex also includes an Orthodox Church, a Mosque and a Synagogue reflecting that the struggle against Fascists united the people of different confessions.

In the park of the Memorial complex that spreads over 135 hectares there are open-air exhibitions displaying weapons, tanks and armored vehicles, fighters and helicopters, submarines and warships used by the Soviet Army during the WW2.
