This is a military park. It is big and impressive but like all military parks, also a little sad. Tell you what, Mother Ukraine has some big arms!

This is a vestige of Ukraine's Soviet past. It is visible from almost every part of Kyiv and can be used as a platform from which to see the city.

Locals refer to it as "Zalizna Baba", the Iron Baba. It has a somewhat pejorative connotation.

This is very close to the National world war museum and you need to buy ticket to enter inside this statue, they will take you to level 1 and you can see other side of Kiev, good view.

This is a great place to come to understand the dynamics of the Soviet involvement in WW2 as well as the more recent and moving exhibition of the conflicts with Russia. Take a day and spend it here. Beautiful setting as well.
