Obviously, you don't need to set aside a block of time to see this guy. If you like Soviet animation, it is definitely worth a stop. In addition to being cute, the construction is actually quite interesting. Chances are you will be wandering the area....More

This is a cute place to pass. It is situated close to the Kiev center. You can take selfies with this cutie. Interesting thing is that this monument was a ridicule to the monument in front that is a boarder guard on a tiny horse.

The location shown on the map here is wrong. Find the monument on the corner park of Reitarska St and Heorhiivs'kyi Lane. Near the St. Sophia Hostel. (Makes a big difference when you're looking for it in 4 degree F weather.)

If you didn't see Soviet cartoon "Hedgehod in the frog", you can skip this place at all. Actually, I did, but I can't find the reason why people like so much it. From my point of view nothing interesting. And I can't realize how this...More

Even though this was for children, we really enjoyed seeing this monument! All the fur/hair is carefully placed screws that actually move giving it an unusual feature.
