The Monument to Liberators of Donbass


The structure is one of the most important city sights. It was erected 25 years ago to honour the military units, which had liberated Donbass from the Nazis during the World War II. Today this is the biggest monument in the south-eastern Ukraine and the most significant for the military history of the city and oblast.

The composition features figures of a miner and a soldier with a banner. A number of columns by their sides symbolize the outlines of coal slag heaps typical for Donetsk.

Initially a museum was planned inside the monument. But the construction was so complex that the idea had to be turned down.

The figures of the Liberators are a part of Donetsk emblem – just another evidence of its big importance for the city.

Location: near Donbass Arena stadium and Viktoria hotel
