i have been to several national monuments all over the world, and this is easily one of the most impressive, take the time to walk the entire way up through the park , through the museum and into the base of the statue itself. it is well worth the time it will take

More like it! Enjoyed the part of Kiev, with history and a lot to show, but the Ukraine is living in, and following old Russian footsteps. Sure they are heavily dependent on the Russian gas supply for cold winters, but they are very unlikely to ever step out of that shadow.

Stunning monuments done in titanium. that statue, in my personal opinion, instills strength. I advise to give it a look if you have a trip in Kiev.

The Rodina Mat statue is Kiev's post-WWII monument to the war dead, and sits on one of the city's highest points, overlooking the river. The standing female figure brandishing a very large sword and holding a shield embossed with hammer and sickle. The national military museum is just below. It is a bit of a hike to get there, but...

The Great Patriotic War Museum provides a very thorough and moving history of the war and struggles that have beset Ukraine. I don't usually visit this type of museum, but I'm glad I did. The entry hall has an exhibition about the current problems in east Ukraine. Then there is are rooms of very well displayed material on various themes/events... More
