Monument to the Unknown Sailor in Odessa is the main compositional element of the memorial complex that perpetuates the memory of Soviet sailors who died during the Second World War, defending and defending Odessa. It is located in the Central Park named after T. Shevchenko, on the way from the city center to the beach “Langeron”. The opening of the monument was held on Victory Day on May 9, 1960, and four years later the project of the complex itself was completed, which was completed in 1970.
The monument can be seen from afar – the obelisk of red granite, ascending 21 meters high, stands out against the blue sky and the blue sea. At its foundation, the Eternal Flame is burning.
The Alley of Glory is leading to the monument, along which there are single and common graves of the heroes of the Odessa defense – pilots, marines, ship captains, submariners, border guards, and others.
