I only just parsed the question in my mind. The location is never mentioned in the movie, so it's odd that the marker is positioned in Siberia, which helped to throw me off (the movie was filmed in Estonia). Maybe turn it into "'The Zone': this mysterious location was the setting of this movie by Andrei Tarkovsky" or something similar.

In the Monuments section, "Description" is written as "Desctiption". For Battle of Stalingrad, the "Date" section says "WII" instead of "WWII".
