Glory Park

No viruses

Glory Park is located on the picturesque banks of the Dnipro river, south of the Kherson Fortress Park. In the 18th century, this territory belonged to the Black Sea Admiralty. Currently, the park is a memorial complex.

History of the park

In March 13, 1967, there was a ceremonial reburial of an unknown soldier who died during the liberation of Kherson during World War II. On May 9th of that year, an eternal flame commemorating the soldiers of WWII was lit. In 1989, the sculpture called Glory was erected - a girl with a wreath in her hands. The monument symbolizes the courage and endurance of the inhabitants as well as the defenders of the city. On the 25th anniversary of the liberation of Kherson, a monument in the form of the T-34 tank was placed at the entrance to the park. The memorial “To Soldiers-Internationalists” was erected in 2013 in honor of the soldiers who died in Afghanistan.
