Around Ulitsa Karla Marksa

Memorial Complex with Eternal Flame

Memorial Complex (May 2013)

Running along much of the boulevard in the middle of Ulitsa Karla Marksa is the city's Second World War memorial complex. The complex starts at the intersection with Ulitsa Lva Tolstogo with a statue of two soldiers which is in honour of the “fearless and true sons of the motherland”. Further on at the intersection with Ulitsa Bebelya there is an obelisk and an eternal flame. Behind this there are several plinths with images of local war heroes and then the names of people from Chistopol who fell in the war. Finally, at the intersection with Ulitsa Narimanova, the complex ends with a pretty sculpture of cranes in flight as in Russia cranes are often used to symbolise the war dead.
