30+ metres high, on a promontory overlooking the city, the docks and the fjord. Built where the female antiaircraft gunners resisted the Luftwaffe. A good place to pause and consider the enormity of what happened here and to get an overview of the modern city....More

We walked from central Murmansk - is an enjoyable walk, takes about 45min - 1hr. Great view from the memorial - is a moving reminder of the Soviet sacrifice in WW2.

impressive but cold and windy walk to the top, with great views over murmansk and the possibility of catching aurora - though it did not materialise for us. Take a taxi there. It's a 30min walk from the nearest bus stop.

This is a mighty and powerful monument to commemorate the many victims of world war 2. If you are in Murmansk this is a place you have to see.

Definitely a must see in Murmansk. The Alyosha Monument is amazing. This stark, immense sculpture of a soldier can be seen from pretty much anywhere in Murmansk but you must visit it up close to realize how large it really is. The location also gives...More

It was a short trip to the monument but in just couple of minutes managed to visit the monument - typical example of Soviet time and to enjoy stunning views over the Bay and the city. The monument is surrounded by a beautiful park which...More
