Moscow Victory Square ( ), built in May 1995 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the victory of the anti-fascist war, is a commemoration of the war by the Russian people and entrusts their prayers for peace. To the north of Victory Square is a large fountain, a long row of fountains and two rows of elegant mushroom pools for visitors to enjoy. To the south of Victory Square opposite the fountain is the Cathedral of St. Georgy. To the east of Victory Square is the Arc de Triomphe in Moscow. To the west of Victory Square, you will be greeted by a tall monument to the goddess of victory, 141.8 meters high, symbolizing the day and night of the 1418 battles of the Great Patriotic War. The triangular-shaped monument body, with embossed panels on each of the facets, represents the battle scenes around 12 hero cities such as Moscow. About 100 meters high, the ancient Greek goddess of victory holds the golden crown of victory. There were two fat little angels flying around her, a man and a woman, blowing the horn of victory. Below the monument is the statue of the magical warrior Georgy holding a spear and killing a snake. The first five steps of the step, each layer represents the year of war. Not far behind the monument is the Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War built to commemorate the Great Patriotic War. The museum houses a collection of precious souvenirs. Behind the
square, there are open-air exhibitions with various artillery, tanks, planes and other objects. On the other side, there is also a display of ships, and the military powers are beginning to show their clues. The entire Victory Park is surrounded by green trees and has an elegant scenery.

Moscow
Moscow is centered around the Red Square and development radiates out from all around it. As the city center, Red Square is similar to Tiananmen Square in Beijing, the place where the country holds large celebrations and military parades. It’s one of Moscow’s most important landmarks, and has been a witness to Moscow’s history.

Here are the best places to visit in Moscow, including: Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, Lenin Mausoleum, Kazan Cathedral, Moscow Metro, Gorky Park.
May-September is the best time to travel. Cool and pleasant at this time, it is best for a summer vacation. Especially in July and August, the temperature is mostly between 20-30 °C, which is more suitable for travel. This is the tourist season in Russia. It is not suitable for travel in Russia from the end of February to the beginning of April. In the early spring, winter snow is getting more and more, the road is muddy and rainy. Cold and dry winter is not suitable, it is short and long, but Russia in winter also has its unique charm. Walking on the streets of Moscow at -29 °C, surrounded by silver makeup and snow, this kind of snow scene is rare. .
