Zaisan is a popular tourist attraction and one of the highlights of Ulan Bator due to the fantastic views it offers over the city.

You can also get an aerial view over the yurt districts, and see how many cranes there are rapidly altering the city skyline with brand new, Soviet-style apartment buildings. There are views of surrounding hills, one of which has the Mongolian national Symbol painted on the slope in white. The memorial includes a 10-meter high statue of a Russian soldier holding a flag and a circular concrete area on which there is a mural.
