The Motherland Declares Victory

In Arts & Culture

She stands 85 meters tall, raising a sword with her right hand and extending the left hand. She stands tall and dominates the skyline of the Volgograd state in southern Russia.

The statue is built on the grounds where the Stalingrad battle took place during World War II. It is also a symbol of Russia’s triumph and an honour to the soldiers who laid down their lives during battle.

It holds the position of being the tallest free standing (non-religious) statue in the world. The statue is not fixed to the base plate it stands on. It is solely supported by its weight. Over two million people visit the statue annually.

The Motherland Calling is part of a bigger memorial complex dedicated to the heroes of the Stalingrad battle.
