Welcome to The Alley of Heroes – a series of monuments that commemorate the casualties of the infamous Second World War, Battle of Stalingrad (now Volgograd).

Located at the heart of the city, it’s surrounded by a couple of fancy hotels and my school’s main campus.

There’s this one time I was out jogging and a tourist walked over to me and requested if I could help him get some shots. And I remember him being pleasantly surprised that a city’s centre could be oh so quiet and peaceful. He’d just arrived from Moscow and said that it was a totally different story over there. πŸ™‚

Just where the Alley intersects the city’s main street is this big ball bursting with color.

Fun fact: That’s my apartment building peeking over the trees!Β πŸ™‚

This walk down to the Volga River is lit up with the fanciest, most beautiful street lights at night.

The slabs on either side are engraved with names of those who fought against the invading German Army during WW2.

And then there’s this beauty right here. A pretty fountain with a view of the river.

I love the design and thought that went into this magnificent construction.
