The location shown on the map here is wrong. Find the monument on the corner park of Reitarska St and Heorhiivs'kyi Lane. Near the St. Sophia Hostel. (Makes a big difference when you're looking for it in 4 degree F weather.)

If you have been raised with Soviet Union cartoons, it is worth seeing. If not, there is nothing special here

If you didn't see Soviet cartoon "Hedgehod in the frog", you can skip this place at all. Actually, I did, but I can't find the reason why people like so much it. From my point of view nothing interesting. And I can't realize how this animal corresponded with historical city center.

Even though this was for children, we really enjoyed seeing this monument! All the fur/hair is carefully placed screws that actually move giving it an unusual feature.

For lot's of kids of 80s this is a well known cartoon character. Keep in mind that the address as given here on Tripadvisor is WRONG. This statue is located at the very end of Reitarska street, opposite the monument of a guy on a horse.

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!
