Eternal Fire

In a park down the Konchura valley with massive trees stands the Eternal Fire above the Unknown Soldier Grave. It's a granite semi-circle monument with a constant flame in the center.

On May,9 (the Russian V-Day) people lay flowers, the authorities put wreaths and World War II veterans gather here to commemorate Soviet soldiers killed by the Nazi. The memory of our motherland defenders lives as long as the Eternal Fire burns.

Wedding couples also frequent the monument as a modern ritual.
