So, who knows about the Russian War Memorial @ Vienna? Noone? I knew it! It is one of the main monuments in Vienna! If you are a history buff and a world war buff, you would love it!! Coming up, you will see some sights from the Riverside including the Danube Tower of Vienna! It stands tall, just close to the Danube river. More trivial facts that I had learned in my Vienna trip ~ revealing soon!!

Trivial Fact # 1 : The River is of pale green color ~ This color is natural !

Danube Tower of Vienna

The Danube Tower is one of the Tallest Towers of Austria. It is known as the “Tallest Landmark” in the Austrian Region! Its style is that of the 1960s! Climb up to 150 mtr and check out the majestic view of Vienna & the Danube River from above! It has a panoramic view of 360 Degrees!

Trivial Fact # 2 : The Water sourced for drinking locally, is natural without any contanimation as water is flown from the Austrian Alps directly to the resident’s houses. They do not need any water purifiers like we Indians or anyone does.

Danube Riverside !!

Even the Danube river is one of the famous European rivers flowing across 7 European cities including Vienna (Austria), Budapest (Hungary), Belgrade (Serbia) & many others. It is always a delight to watch the Danube river flow in ease!

Soviet/Russian War Memorial

Heldendenkmal der Roten Armee or “Soviet War Memorial”

The above Soviet or Russian War Memorial is located at the “Schwarzenbergplatz” area of Vienna. You can reach here by foot from the Main Train Station or by local transit buses. It is close to the Pedestrian Street! It is a memorial commemorated for the WWII Victory of the Red Army over the Germans, in 1945. The Heroes Monument (surrounding the Lone Soldier erected in midst of the arena) was built in order to pay tribute to the fallen 17,000 soviet soldiers who helped the various Europeans free themselves from the Germans! Let’s take a short glimpse of the same!
