Together with the Samara square the Glory square makes a whole architectural ensemble. In the center is a symbol of Samara - Monument of Glory. The monument was created in honor of the workers of the aviation industry of the city, made their feat of labor during the war. The 13 meters tall figure of a worker holding wings in a raised hand stands on 40-meter pedestal. The monument symbolizes the contribution of Samara residents to the creation of country's aviation industry. During the Second World War, the city produced aircraft Il-2, which by the military is called a "flying tank". Next to the monument in front of the high relief of the Motherland, eternal flame burns. Behind it stands a temple in the name of George the Victorious and the monument to Peter and Fevronia of Murom, patrons of the family. On the other side of the square stands the building of the Government of the Samara region. The Glory square is one of the best viewing areas of the city, offering a panoramic view of the Volga and its right bank. The staircase leads from the monument to the Glory promenade and Volzhsky prospect.
