Pay tribute to the largest movement of motorized troops in the history of warfare at Zaisan Memorial, a monumental concrete sculpture perched on the top of a hill. A Soviet T34 tank mounted on a concrete pedestal commemorates the efforts of the World War II Mongolia People's Tank Brigade, which covered the distance from Moscow to Berlin. At the 360-degree observation deck, a concrete memorial in the shape of a colossal proletarian flag towers over a large curved mural depicting friendship between the peoples of the USSR and Mongolia.

Zaisan Memorial Reviews
This memorial is amazing. The many painted frescoes told quite a story, a real history lesson. The view from the top is really good, it’s a must see if in Ulaanbatar. more »
몽골의 울란바토르 시내를 한눈에 보고 싶다면 꼭 가보셔야 하는 곳입니다. 계단이 있어 걷기 어려우신분은 좀 힘드시겠지만 거의 꼭대기까지는 차로 이동이 가능하시때문에 추천합니다. 꼭대기 광경도 멋지지만 전승 기념 벽화도 볼만합니다. 입장료도 없는 곳이기때문에 도심을 한눈에 보고싶은 분들은 꼭 가보세요! more »If you want to see the city of Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia, this is the place to visit. It's a bit difficult to walk by stairs, but it's almost accessible by car from the top. The view from the top is also nice. For those who want to see the explained of the downtown, please visit!
I first went here in December 2004, back before they developed this area. The stairs and pathways leading up to the monument have improved much since then. The pollution makes it hard to get a good, clear view of the city, but it's still a meaningful historical site to visit.
Interesting to see the connection between Mongolia & Russia. The view of the city is also spectacular, plus the large shopping centre and movie theatre.
