• Tank T-34-85 at the cinema "Mir"
Barnaul, pl. Victory, 1 (intersection of Stroiteley St. and Krasnoarmeysky Ave.)
10 thousand diesel engines for the most massive tank of the Great Patriotic War were produced in Barnaul. As a symbol of memory to the feat of front-line soldiers and home front workers, this combat vehicle was installed on a granite pedestal in front of the Mir cinema for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Victory, adding to the Glory Memorial complex on Victory Square.

About the combat path of the "thirty-four", frozen at the Barnaul cinema, is known from the words of war veteran Matvey Belov, who saw the tank's form. As part of the 6th Panzer Army, this vehicle passed through all of Europe, participated in the liberation of Prague, and later in battles with the Japanese army in the East.

As a monument, this modification of the T-34 first stood in a separate motorized rifle regiment in the Aktash village of the Altai Republic. After its disbandment, the T-34s were sent to Biysk to a tank training ground, and from there they were transferred to Barnaul.
