Monument to the Homeland-Mother

Cherkasy, Ukraine
4.8 / 54
The Monument to the Homeland-Mother, located in the memorial complex "Hill of Glory" in Cherkasy, Ukraine, was built in 1977 to commemorate the residents of the city who died during the German-Soviet war. This beautiful monument, situated on a hill, offers breathtaking views of the Rose Park and the Dnieper River. The memorial complex features a wide ritual square, adorned with a mound-like embankment and granite steps, leading up to the 10-meter-high sculpture of a woman-mother, symbolizing the Motherland. In her raised right hand, she holds a bowl with an Eternal Fire, while her left hand faces the ritual square. The granite-lined retaining wall of the complex displays a large relief composition depicting a battle scene, along with the names of 904 Cherkasy soldiers who lost their lives in World War II. Terraces lined with granite blocks lead visitors to the top of the hill, where nearly a thousand soldiers are buried. The memorial granite wall surrounding the hill is engraved with the names of the city's residents who died in battle. Additionally, there are five bronze bas-reliefs on the retaining wall, depicting various aspects of the war and immortalizing the representatives of the Soviet Army. Although reaching the monument can be a challenge for tourists, it is well worth the effort. The monument, also known as the Eternal Flame monument, offers a magnificent view of the Dnieper River and the Valley of Roses. The monument's grandeur is best appreciated during daylight, as the nighttime view is not as captivating. The Hill of Glory, where the monument stands, is a popular spot for people to gather and celebrate holidays. Visiting the Monument to the Homeland-Mother is a must for anyone in Cherkasy. Its awe-inspiring view of the Dnieper River and the Valley of Roses, combined with its majestic design representing an immortal feat, makes it a truly remarkable experience.
