About this spot
Brest Fortress (aka Brest-Litovsk Fortress) is a 19th Century fortress which in 1965 became 'Hero Fortress' in conmemoration of the Red Army troops who stubbornly refused to surrender to the Nazi German attack in 1941. There are several impressive statues around the fortress, but the enormous 'Courage Monument' of a frowning Red Army soldier looking down is by far the best known, and is even seen as a icon of Belarus. Other statues include 'Thirst', a statue of a desperately thirsty soldier trying to collect water in his helmet from the river.
