Happy 53rd Victory Day!!!


It was probably my 9th/10th visit to Victory Park which is known in Russian as "Park Pabedi"..... The park is always packed with Muscovites enjoying the sun while roller-blading and riding around the huge expanse of the park during bright sunny spring summer days, but when it comes to windy snowy winter time, i bet nobody gonna spend their time walking there. Nevertheless hundreds or maybe thousands of newly married couple will come to this park no matter what season is, their tradition is to visit memorial spots during wedding day, in their wedding gowns and suits...


The main attraction of this park which has become one of the most important places for a Muslim is the Beautiful Mosque... Some of the boys will come here every friday to perform their Jumaat prayers.... it was a gift by the russian government to commemorate the muslim patriots in helping them during WW2. It is so called a Russian tradition marking military victories by establishing chapels. There are also a Russian Orthodox Church, and a synagogue within the park.



I have to say that my visit this time really brings a mixed up feeling... i've been here many times, and i'd been here for the 49th Victory day Celebration in 2004... but it was only yesterday when suddenly i felt into tears, looking at those veterans.... and it reminds me a lot of my late grandma who tried to save my mom's life during Zaman Penjajahan Jepun....
and that's why i took the opportunity to talk and to take photo with them... after all this maybe my last visit to Victory Park....
owh ya, in the picture below please don't bother to look at me, but have a look at those battalion of policeman behind me... i admire them all because of the uniform... ngah3...

tiffany said...

hani---<@ it's not the only place taww hani but this park ade ciri2 sejarah tersendiri... and FYI russian citizens sgt patriotic dan diorang betol2 hargai kisah zaman lampau... park ni lebih kurang macam tugu negara kat malaysia, but that tugu takde sape pon akan pergi ye tak... but this park people go here every day even for just a walk...

walaupon penat nak jalan satu park ni, tapi i sgt suka sbb rasa tenang dan lapang aje,,


pu3nemo---<@ nak ngorat boleh, tapi kalau kene kejar ngan parang panjang pandai larik sembunyik ek..
