On the street of June 17 and near the Brandenburg Gate, the Soviet War Memorial commemorates fallen Soviet soldiers who died during the Second World War.
Flanked by two "T 34" tanks, in the middle of the square stands a bronze statue of a Red Army soldier carrying his rifle on his shoulder. On the pillars behind are texts with the names of fallen Soviet soldiers attached. In the rear part of the memorial are the graves of about 2500 soldiers.
