Overview

At the southern end of Schwarzenbergplatz lies the Russian Heroes Monument, a gift from the Russian people commemorating the liberators of Vienna. Under the terms of the State Treaty of 1955, the Austrians committed themselves to paying for the upkeep of this highly controversial monument. The soldiers gilt shield glistens in the midday sun, occasionally (and deliberately) obscured by the jets of water from the Hochstrahlbrunnen, a fountain commemorating the installation of the citys mains water system in 1873.
