It used to be that if you were visiting Moscow from the west it was considered good manners to bow to this hill to pay homage – the name of the hill comes from the Russian for 'take a bow'.

These days much of the hill is covered by the tanks and other vehicles of Victory Park, which commemorates the Soviet involvement in the Second World War and the Russian victory over Napoleon.
