Model of monumental art of the Soviet period. The awful sculpture the "woman with a file" called in the people can be interesting to fans or critics of the Soviet art. It is possible to rise to the platform of a review at monument top.

It takes a 10min hike up the hill but it is so worth it. Not only is the statue amazing, the views are breathtaking. Very nice to wonder around and see all the tanks and canons. You automatically get quiet and respectfull when near the monument. Def worth a visit while in Kiev

Impressive from a distance, the statue is even more majestic close up. Walk there after visiting the monastery and you will approach it through the grounds of the War Museum Complex. Fascinating.

I saw this a sundown. Could not get too close. We walked through the outdoor part of the Victory Museum also, these 2 attractions are located together.

For anybody who is fond of history and photography - this place is absolutely recommended.Though if you want to take good pics of this monument, go to Dnipro metro station.

The Mother Motherland statue is huge -- an impressive 203 ft (62 m). But, even that is on top of pedestal making the total height at 335 ft (102 m). This statue is a part of the Museum of The History of Ukraine in World War II. So, as you leave the statue, make sure you head through the hall... More
