“Nice place”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful statue in a nice square, with a great war museum near. I Recommend the visit! The museum had amazing stuff, from tank and helicopter to tuck with big bombs!

“The biggest monument in Kiev”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Motherland statue is the biggest monument in Kiev. The main sculpture - the figure of a woman with a shield and a sword in hands - was made of slab stainless steel and erected on a 40-meter cone pedestal.
Under this figure it's "The National Museum of the History of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945", so if you will visit Kiev, it will be a great choice to kill two birds with one shot.
Last year, elevator inside Rodina Mat' was opened, so there is a panoramic view area for visitors at the level of 36 meters, and it cost 50UAH per person.
Here you can also read about this monument http://www.tripkiev.com/2011/10/biggest-monument-in-kiev-rodina-mat.html

I advice everyone to visit this museum and you will remember it all your life.

“Overpowering Statue”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

This is a huge statue and yes you can see it from the metro coming into the city but nothing better than seeing her up close to know how impressive she is. She stands on the War museum so you can take care of two visits in one.
