Mamayev Kurgan

Mamayev Kurgan (Russian: Мамаев Курган) is a dominant height overlooking the city of Volgograd (formerly Stalingrad) in Southern Russia. The name in Russian means «tumulus of Mamai»

The formation is dominated by a memorial complex commemorating the Battle of Stalingrad (August 1942 to February 1943). The battle was a hard-fought Soviet victory over Axis forces on the Eastern front of World War II and arguably the bloodiest battle in human history.At the time of its installation in 1967 the statue named The Motherland Calls formed the largest free-standing sculpture in the world,now it is the tallest sculpture of a woman in the world
