Zaisan is an outstanding Memorial from the Communist period that honors allied Mongolian and Soviet soldiers killed in World War II. It is located on a hill in the southern part of the city, and you can either walk up or drive. The memorial features a circular mosaic that depicts scenes of friendship between the people of the USSR and Mongolia. It has scenes from the war and of space exploration. VMy favorite place in UB.

If you are interested in the Soviet Union memorabilia, you'd love coming up here. It's a memorial that honors Soviet soldiers killed in World War II.

Zaisan Memorial stands on a hill named “Zaisan” in the south UB. The Zaisan Memorial Hill was erected on the 50th anniversary of the Communist Revolution and honors the Soviet and Mongolian soldiers who died in WWII in the fight against Japan and Nazi Germany. Next to the statue of the soldier, a mosaic composition on a large circular panel in reinforced concrete illustrates the theme of friendship between Mongol and Soviet peoples. In the center of it a large granite bowl holds an eternal flame. At the top of the hill, you have sweeping panoramic views of the city - you wouldn't believe how populated UB is! It's almost a concrete jungle.
To get to the top, it's up up up - all the way... takes about 20 minutes to reach the top after you've conquered a few hundred steps. Bring water with you.
To get to Zaisan - the easy way would be get a taxi or if you're on a budget, catch bus no.7 from the city to the foot of the hill. Public transport stops after 10.00pm.

Built by the Soviets to commemorate its soldiers and the ensuring peace, the Zaisan monument is a beautiful relic of the former Soviet designs. Climb up this hill and visitors are rewarded by beautiful 360 degree views of the city.

Located on the other side of the river that crosses UB from East to West. Zaizan is a war monument dedicated to World war two. In a pure Soviet style it dominates the city. The view is complete on the city. By night it's even nicer as the tourist flow is very low.
