Monument: The children - victims of adult vices
Ranked #405 of 2,519 things to do in Moscow
Attraction details
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Generally not a well described place to visit, but if you are in the area it is more than worth the visit! This is an interesting monument done by Mihail Chemiakin.Depicting the vices of adults, and how children should not be exposed to these vices. The Children are depicted in gold and blind folded, whilst all the vices are depicted as grotesque and lingering in an semi-circle around the children. The only sad thing is you are not allowed to go to close to the depictions, so you can not always read nicely what they present. Still more than worth a visit! Enjoy

I would just like to say as a moscovite, this monument is a great example of contemporary, post Cold War art. Really worth to see esp if you're tired of churches and want to have a rest in a small green park in the centre of the city. My favourite monument in Moscow.

We stumbled across this on a morning walk. Deeply poignant, it is a briliant piece of sculpture. Shame it is hidden away, it is worth making the effort to see. It is just across the river from the Kremlin, so no excuses!!
