Sixth Turret

Aleksandr Zelikov/TASS

This, perhaps, is the most symbolic turret, mounted at the historical peak of Mamaev Kurgan, elevation 102.0, next to All Saints Church. It's possible to reach by bike, riding from the television tower where there is an automobile road to the monument. But it's best to leave bikes on Prospekt Lenina at the bottom of Mamaev Kurgan and to climb 200 steps to the top, the same number as the days of the Battle of Stalingrad. The top of Mamaev Kurgan, on which The Motherland Calls statue is situated, was made during the construction of the Heroes of the Battle of Stanlingrad memorials in the 1960s.
