If you love the famous hedgehog in the fog animation, this little statue is worth tracking down. It's just off the Main Street so easy to find!

Unfortunately the sculpture was destroyed by vandals. And you will not find it at the moment. As the announcement says - I will be back in May 2014.

We went to see it yesterday, and the hedgehog is GONE! Does anyone know why?

We were in the right place, and there was a poster on the nearby tree with a picture of it...

If you enjoy russian cartoons fron the 70's, this monument is for you. The Hedgehog is the main character of the 1975 soviet cartoon "Yozhik v tumane". The monument is a really popular attraction as we had to wait a few minutes to take our picture with it!

This small and cute monument is dedicated to the nice and universal appeal character from famous and popular Soviet animation "The Hedgehog in the Fog". The cartoon itself has quite simple and not very exciting story, but almost all like it. This monument is named "Лошадка" ("Horsie"), as illustration from animation story where hedgehog meets horse during his wandering in fog. He is surprised to meet horse and scared a little. The same situation is here - near the hedgehog another monument is placed, which takes one of 3 winning places as the most...m-mm… illogical monument in Kiev, probably because of the gravity miracles demonstrated by horseman (he is stay on horseback as supported by irons, but there is no any support for him, actually :) ). Maybe because of that hedgehog looks so surprised. Anyway, to understanding better the scene, this hedgehog monument needs the second one with horse been involved in assessment. The better way to explore it is as it made on picture attached. This is my favorite monument in Kiev. It`s not ambitious and helps people smile and find joy in simple things.
