1. Silence amongst the Chaos.

    Again, its mid-day in Berlin on a beautiful day and all the tourist stay clear of all my favorite places… perhaps that long line at Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts is filling all their time?  This Soviet War Memorial is in the center of town, 2 min walk from the Brandenburger Gate & is empty - Thankfully.

    The Soviet War Memorial (Tiergarten) is one of several war memorials in Berlin, capital city of Germany, erected by the Soviet Union to commemorate its war dead, particularly the 80,000 soldiers of the Soviet Armed Forces who died during the Battle of Berlin in April and May 1945.

    The memorial is located in the Großer Tiergarten, a large public park to the west of the city centre, on the north side of the east-west Straße des 17. Juni (17 June Street) in the Tiergarten locality.
