MUSEUM OF THE UNKNOWN SOVIET SOLDIER
A suggestive mausoleum dedicated to an internationalist soviet soldier, it was opened in Cuba on February 23rd of 1978 with the idea of honouring those fallen during the help offered to the Revolutionary Armed Forces.
It is located to one side of the national highway that unites the capital with the town of San Antonio de los Baños.
The sober and stern shape of the monument contrasts with the environment of flowers and plants that flourish in its gardens.
Over this Cuban landscape, awash with the greenery of the trees and the brilliant tropical sun, dotted by the palms that give it a particular tropical note, rise the grey marble slabs.
Over the far wall, a hand holds a rifle, while the other offers fallen sprigs of oak and laurel.
