Mound of Glory uses four bayonets atop a man-made hill to represent each of the Soviet fronts in World War II. You can park your car next to a row of Soviet tanks. Take the stairs, which encircle the grassy hill, offering different views of the monument. The pyramidal hill was built from the scorched earth of the nine Soviet "hero cities," not far from the location of the last battle in Belarus. Notice the sculpted faces of partisans at the base of the monument. Look for a big plaque with the iconic Soviet hammer-and-sickle and a text in mosaic praising the Soviet army for its efforts.
