Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is at the foot of the Kremlin wall in Alexandrovsky Sad, where the Eternal Flame of memory burns. The Tomb has the inscription: 'Your name is unknown, your feat immortal'. This red granite memorial to the heroes of World War II was unveiled on May 8, 1966, on the eve of Victory Day to commemorate the anniversary of the defeat of German forces in battles near Moscow. The remains of the Unknown Soldier were taken from a mass grave at the village of Kryukovo, at the 41st kilometer of the Leningrad Highway, where enemy troops attacking Moscow had been halted. To the right of the Tomb are six urns holding soil from the six cities that resisted the German occupation: Odessa, Sevastolop, Volgograd, Kiev, Brest, St. Petersburg. War veterans and other citizens come to the tomb to put the flowers and to pay their respects on the day of victory over Nazi Germany, celebrated in Russia on 9th of May.
