The Sword of Victory

These days there were huge celebrations for the Victory Day - the annual date when they mark the victory of Russia in World War 2. In Russia people got really amused when someone tells them that World War 2 was won by allies. Every Russia, from schoolboy to oldest granddad know that the World War 2 victory is Russian. So right after the war ended the decided to commemorate the victory in art too. They wanted to erect something as big as never was done before. So the idea came to
someone to build not one but a chain of monuments and place them in different locations to shock the imagination of people with the scale of this creation. And so it has been done. Three huge tall monuments were build in three locations - from Ural mountains in the central Russia to Berlin, Germany. All three monuments were connected by one item. It was a huge metal sword of victory. Let's go inside to see all three in detail.

These days there was a sand sculptures contest in Moscow. Some of the most cool looking ones you can find in this post. The organizers didn't realize that Moscow is not the best place to held such an event because of unstable spring
climate. Usually those contests are being conducted in the regions where the rains are not so often, but in this place and this time of the years rains just can go daily, so it's big pity they didn't last long.
