Mother Russia Memorial Complex (May 2013)

The most striking and unusual monument in Naberezhnye Chelny is without a doubt the Mother Russian Monument with is part of a Second World War memorial complex. It was unveiled in 1975 on the 30th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and is the work of the Tatar sculptor Ildar Khanov, who was also the architect behind Kazan's famous Temple of All Religions. Mother Russia is depicted defiantly flying through the air with a sword in one hand and with Soviet soldiers on both sides. Behind the main monument is an eternal flame and plinths inscribed with the names of citizens of Naberezhnye Chelny who lost their lives in the war.
