This is one large statue. It dwarfs the Angel of the North by a long way and has to be seen to be appreciated. The setting, overlooking the tanks, guns and planes, is very impressive too. Well worth a visit.

Many things remember the sovjet times here. It's a well designed place for former polititical understatement

It's not easy to take good photos as she faces north but I was there after 10am and the light was good. Do not miss the military museum nearby, 5 UAH entry and climb into a MiG-23 for 10 more.

I uderstand this was created as a world war 2 museum. It's a strangely beautiful remnant of the soviet union.

Towering over the city, this extraordinary statue was built to commemorate Soviet victory over the Nazis and the idea of a military park(old soviet era tanks and warplanes used during the war) is also an interesting concept. Not a place to rush through, make sure...More

You can see the Rodina Mat from everywhere around the river. It is very big, and very impressive. If you can get close to it, do it, because its size and shape are very striking against the skies of Kiev!

Come on, you can't visit Kiev and not stop here. Take your time, hang out, and make sure to visit the museum inside - take a look at the mosaic ceiling on the upper level.

Didn't find this the easiest place in the world to get to but it is highly recommended and worth the effort. Take the subway to Dnipro and its a short hike / walk from there. Some of the routes from the main highway were blocked...More
