Certainly leaves an impression! The area is impressive and there is loads to see. The "Mother" statue is gigantic (truly impressive!). We got there easily w Uber and walked on to reach the Kiev Pechersk Lavra.

Located adjacent to War Museum. Motherland statue is built very well, location is excellent. Very unfortunate that it was a foggy day hence couldnt explore more.

Out of the metro it's an one-way walk, where you pass the cave monastery, straight to this enormous statue (15 minutes). Beside this statue, which is impressive itself, there is a great view of the city, and many cold- and world war items to see.

Dominating the skyline this statue is nearly 200 metres high. The war museum is housed underneath. Worth a walk out of the centre to visit this area

I have wanted to visit this statue for a long time, and as soon as I saw it I felt excited. Unfortunately the outside pedestal was closed but the war museum underneath was interesting. True, the isn't much in English but you can get the...More

History of World War II is still living in this place. Military museum of Soviet Union, I do not like it.

impressive to see how much money was spent, when people were starving. Interesting to see exhibits. Great vista of the city which makes going worthwhile. all in all, not a must not miss location.
