I love the fact that the spoon is actually designed for lying down and posing for photos. It’s a truly local monument.

Big deal with locals. Good photo op. It's on the way as you walk to the White Arbor so it's worth taking a look. As far as a stand alone attraction ... Don't think so.

One of the famous dishes in Ukraine is the local dumpling. This monument is a huge plate of dumplings. This reminds you to go eat some! :p

This type of places is for 'been here done that' people. I didn't know that Poltava dumplings are famous. When I see the monument I know they are.
