This is more like a school trip for the kids or a visit for local people to embrace and uplift their nationalist feeling. But for tourists, I think it's ok to see it from afar if you don't have enough time to cover everything.

I walked up to the monument from town, seeing Semyon the cat first. This is a great monument, really impressive and the views of the harbour from the site were equally amazing. I would definitely recommend this visit.

We were on a cruise, so took a bus tour and visited this monument. The area is really great and the views from the top are fantastic. The monument is massive and really worth visiting.

Great Lookout Spot and the rocky landscape nearby is the best for nature wander. Make sure you can windproof and waterproof clothing if visiting in the windy/rainy months, no shelter nearby
