4.0
Monument · Landmark
Pay tribute to the largest movement of motorized troops in the history of warfare at Zaisan Memorial, a monumental concrete sculpture perched on the top of a hill. A Soviet T34 tank mounted on a concrete pedestal commemorates the efforts of the World War II Mongolia People's Tank Brigade, which covered the distance from Moscow to Berlin. At the 360-degree observation deck, a concrete memorial in the shape of a colossal proletarian flag towers over a large curved mural depicting friendship between the peoples of the USSR and Mongolia.

  • Beautiful panoramic view of the city! Also shows how much the Mongolia people contributed for the Soviet Union which is hardly spoken of anywhere..
  • An intriguing war monument high atop Zaisan Hill.. Climbing effort is needed to get to the monument.. Good place to exercise your breathing and joints.. A guide is needed to fully explain the mural at the monument.. Otherwise, you can make it up along with the depictions of the mural.. At the monument, you are rewarded with a wonderful view of Ulaanbaatar..
