Victory Square (Плошча Перамогі, Площадь Победы), one of the key landmarks of Minsk, the capital city of Belarus.

"One of the most important places in Belarus, Minsk Victory Square is dominated by the huge 40m obelisk, a memorial to the country’s war dead. Previously known as The Circus, Victory Square was renamed and made into a memorial in 1954 when the obelisk was erected. Around the base of the monument were placed four scenes engraved by Belarusian sculptors, depicting: "9th May 1945 Victory Day", "Partisans of Belarus", "Glory to the fallen heroes", "Soviet Army during the years of the Great Patriotic War". On 3rd July 1961 an eternal flame was lit at the base of the obelisk. Minsk Victory Square today is a place of pilgrimage for the people of Belarus wishing to remember the millions that died in the Great Patriotic War (World War 2). Many newly married couples stop off at the eternal flame to take a special wedding-day photograph." (Text from the official website of the Republic of Belarus).
