Zaisan Memorial, Ulaanbaatar

4.0
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.

  • I first went here in December 2004, back before they developed this area. The stairs and pathways leading up to the monument have improved much since then. The pollution makes it hard to get a good, clear view of the city, but it's still a meaningful historical site to visit.
  • Interesting to see the connection between Mongolia & Russia. The view of the city is also spectacular, plus the large shopping centre and movie theatre.
