The Biggest Monument in Europe
The Monument to the Battle of the Nations is the biggest monument in Europe and it is standing in Leipzig, Germany.
Leipzig has always occupied an important position on the map: either because of its big and old fairs and markets, or because it was the cradle of great composers like Bach, Mendelsohn, Schumann, Wagner or Grieg, who spent several years living and working in this city, or even because it was the scene of one of the most important Napoleonic battles, the Battle of the Nations. Not to mention that great scholars such as Goethe, Leibnitz and Nietzsche studied at the University of Leipzig, Germany's second oldest university. But there is no need to look back on past centuries when, in our more recent history, Leipzig also occupies a crucial place.
