It is not where the map shows

It is on a little square close to where the map shows. Unfortunately the little bag is missing and also many needles - probably taken as souvenirs. Please don't you do the same!

It is a monument for an old Soviet cartoon charachetr cold "hedgehog in the fog". You should take a look if you make your way to Sofiyska Church.

“Hedgehog in Fog” one of the most famous soviet cartoon in the history of animation. In Kiev you can see this amazing monument of the Hedgehog - the main character. So cute!

For those of us who love cartoon 'Ezhik v tumane' , this monument was a hilarious and unexpected thing to see on the street. For those who never saw it, it is just a creative piece of art. Nice sculpture that shows that Kiev is not such a serious city, after all.

The hedgehog monument is simply a tiny statue of a smiling hedgehog next to golden gate. As a western tourist I was not aware of the hedgehog before and simply enjoyed to foto opportunity. Probably more fun if you know the context.

It's a little children monument of the hedgehog in the fog :p But please don't expect a lot, it's only a little statue on the street. It's no big deal and we, locals, walk past it every day without paying attention to it. It definitely is cute but it's not really a monument haha !

Wasn't the intention but walked around and stumbled upon this. Kids may enjoy it of course, not very big, but still a nice little gesture

I have never heard about this until my guide told me about it.. Then I had heard that it was going to be taken down for another new art piece.
