Glory Square

The Glory square, situated on the high bank of Amur, is the newest square of the city. It was opened on the 30th anniversary of the victory in the Patriotic War. A 30-meter high three-pylon obelisk rises in its center. The central construction of the memorial complex is a commemorative wall in semicircle with the Eternal Flame in the center. The Transfiguration of the Christ Cathedral in the square can be seen from far beyond the city borders. Its first stone was laid in 2001, and the first service was conducted in 2004. With the height of 95 meters, the cathedral is the third tallest Orthodox church in Russia after the Christ the Savior Cathedral in Moscow and Saint Isaac Cathedral in St. Petersburg.
