Heldendenkmal der Roten Armee (Heroes' Monument of the Red Army or Soviet War Memorial), Vienna (Austria)

The Soviet War Memorial in Vienna, more formally known as the Heldendenkmal der Roten Armee (Heroes' Monument of the Red Army) is located
at Vienna's Schwarzenbergplatz. The semi-circular white marble colonnade partially enclosing a twelve-metre figure of a Red Army Soldier was unveiled in 1945. The Heroes' Monument of the Red Army in Vienna was built to commemorate 17.000 Soviet soldiers who fell in the Battle for Vienna of World War II. The memorial includes a triumphal arch and is dominated by the figure of a soldier with a Shpagin submachine gun on his chest.
The soldier wears a golden helmet and holds a Soviet flag and a golden Soviet coat of arms.
