The Soviet War Memorial is a war memorial and cemetery inside Treptower Park. Built to commemorate 5,000 of the estimated 80,000 Russian soldiers who died in the Battle of Berlin it is a must see for anyone interested in German/Russian history.
After World War II, the Soviet War Memorial at Treptower Park was built to commemorate over 80,000 Soviet soldiers who gave their lives in the Battle of Berlin.
After the Berlin Wall fell, the newly formed German government agreed to maintain all war memorials in the country, including the one at Treptower Park. While the German government owns the property, they must get approval from the Russian Federation before undertaking major changes to the monument.
