Stunning monument. It stands glorious right in the centre of the city. It is easy to see from all around. A great piece of architecture and history.

Walking this plaza evokes a multitude of feelings. Only two years ago thousands of courageous people spoke up in this very place for the dignity of themselves and their country. For Ukraine, this has become sacred ground.

I walked past this monument everyday and it was always a beautiful sight. There are other statues/monuments nearby by but when I went it was the anniversary of the war that had just taken place.

It is the central square of Kyiv - Maidan of the Independence. Both "revolutions" took place here (2004, 2014). During the holidays concerts are organized at the square. It is a little bit overloaded with different monuments, but it is the heart of Kyiv. Must see...

Nothing means more for Ukrainians, than Maidan. A place where everyone must have been, but read and watch some information about the Maidan before .
