Victory Memorial Prokhorovka

This 52 meter high bell tower was built in 1995 on the former battlefield of Prokhorovka to commemorate the battle at Prokhorovka (12 July 1943), one of the largest tank battles in military history. The bells rings every 20 minutes to commemorate the fallen. There are also a number of Soviet tanks and artillery pieces here.
