The largest and most magnificent stele is the center of the memorial complex that tells about the sufferings of all the Soviet people, their struggle and inexpressible feeling of victory. Nearby there is a monument to mother - Motherland. At the foot of the monument an eternal flame burns as a symbol of victory. On the gray granite there are carved gold letters that say that "Heroes do not die. They gain immortality and forever remain in our memory, our present and future achievements. Future generations owe their lives to them".
