Treptower Park

Built to commemorate the Russian casualties in World War 2, Treptower Park sits in the east of Berlin below the trendy nightclubs and bars of the Warschauer Strauss and Frankfurter Alle.

It is some how even more striking to see this place in winter with the imposing statues coated in snow and the flowers left in remembrance frozen to the paving stones. The craftsmanship is sublime in this monument to the dead but its worth remembering what it represents and who left it there.
