In 1966, the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the defeat of fascist troops in Moscow, opened the eternal flame in honor of the fallen in the Great Patriotic War soldiers.
At the foot of the Kremlin in the heart of the Alexander Gardens is located Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. For this monument they were brought remains of a mass grave on the outskirts of Leningrad. Shortly thereafter in 1967 it opened a slab of marble and bronze structure showing a laurel branch and soldier helmet resting on a flag.
Always guarded by soldiers guarding the monument, themselves can see the changing of the guard takes place every hour.
In that same monument is an inscription that reads:
“Your name is unknown, your deed is immortal”
