Victory Square is one of the main squares of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, which is located at the foot of Mount Bolshevik. From this square originates the eponymous avenue, which runs from west to east through the whole city.
Victory Square received its name on May 6, 1975 - on the eve of the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the liberation of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands from the Japanese invaders. At the same time, a memorial complex was opened here, under the pedestal of which a cartridge case with earth stained with the blood of Soviet soldiers was buried. A T-34-85 tank is installed on the concrete pedestal of the complex, in front of which there is a 76-mm anti-tank gun and a 122-mm howitzer.
The Pobeda Museum and Memorial Complex features unique 3D panoramas dedicated to the military history of the island region, military equipment simulators and a shooting range that make you feel like a pilot, sniper or tanker. Immersion in the historical environment allows visitors to independently experience every moment of the victorious battle, let through the feelings experienced by the heroes of those bloody battles.
Cathedral of the Nativity The new cathedral church of the city, erected in 2015 to replace the old one, which, due to its small size, could not accommodate everyone.

The building is constructed from Indian red marble and granite, as well as ordinary white marble. The outer walls are decorated with mosaics created in Jerusalem.
