The at least 50-meter-high statue is the highlight of the entire plaza. There are many ditched tanks and other weaponry of "Soviet" era be shown as well. A fair bit (20-min) of walking from the nearest metro station.

We took the subway and got out at arselna and walked the bit to the eternal flame and motherland. It's very big and looks magnificent from a far and close by.

This huge statue can already be seen when entering the city of Kiev. From the statue you can admire a beautiful panorama.

Little bit tricky to get there, best approach is with Uber or a quite long walk from one of the nearby Metro stations.

Amazing, the statue is only part of the whole area, with various sculptures showing the history of fighters and those who remained in the rear, must take a guide to explain the history of the establishment of sculptures and what is interpreted

The monument is very impressive. All the complex is very interesting and worth a visit. Especially on a sunny day.
