It's actually south of the cathedral. Look for a small triangular park with a man on a horse. It's across the road.

Very creative piece of art made with wood. and spikes. There are also cats that were made with the same materials scattered through out the centre in Kiev. Nearby Zolota Volota station there are 3-4. Definitely one of the most beloved places on earth! Visited back in Oct 2013.

Just a fun statue in a country that has far too many serious ones. Worth a look if you're in the area but don't go too far out of your way.

Statue is cute with screws simulating the spikes, but nothing special, not worth the trip. 200 meters from golden gate, not easy to find.

In 2003 "Hedgehog in the Fog" won the "#1 Animated film of all the time" at "All time animation best 150 in Japan and Worldwide" contest in Tokyo, Japan. I bet Japanese know stuff about animation)) Other reviews even provide the link to the video on Youtube - so why not check it out. A cartoon, that every Soviet kid... More

At the top of the hill by the Ukraine / Russian monument this little chap sits. You can put money in, touch him and wish for your hearts desires. A quirky statue

It's kind of cute, but small, and really not worth going out of your way for. Not worth your time unless you are walking past anyway.

So this may not be worth a trip to see but it is near the Golden Gate so you might as well plan your route accordingly. There is a fun cartoon about a Hedgehog and this is a monument to it. Pretty straight forward. You can watch the cartoon here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRsXU4Q6a0Q
