The Bronze Soldier (Estonian: Pronkssõdur), originally Monument to the Liberators of Tallinn (Estonian: Tallinna vabastajate monument, Russian: Монумент освободителям Таллина), sometimes called the Tõnismäe Monument, was a Soviet World War II memorial in central Tallinn, Estonia. The monument consisted of a mastaba-like structure of dolomite and a two meter (6.5ft) statue of a soldier in Soviet uniform located on Tõnismägi (Lit. St Anthony's hill) in close proximity to a small mass grave of reburied Soviet soldiers' remains, created in April 1945.
