We visited in the evening, just after dark, if anything that made this much more special. It’s a beautiful monument and is so well kept.

Such a sad place. But we take for granted what people have died, freedom fighters. This wasn't my fight but my anchestors died for the same fight. They died fighting against thr repressive USSR.
Cemetery and a memorial place in Baku. You can get a panoramic view when you get there.
