The Motherland Monument

Kyiv, Ukraine
4.7 / 88
A monumental female statue with a shield and a sword glorifying victory in the Great Patriotic War. The monument is part of a memorial complex dedicated to the history of the Second World War (the official name is the Museum of the History of Ukraine in World War II). This is one of the largest expositions in Ukraine. The height of the monument is 102 meters. When creating, it was assumed that the statue would last 150 years and be able to withstand during a major earthquake.

Museum door guards very rude while we were in the lobby desiring if we go or not into the place. We leave and we did not get in. Interesting corner with a Soviet taste.
I enjoyed walking ?‍♂️ around took photo of all War trucks, plane and helicopter. But mostly I liked statue of motherland
Amazing structure, you can also pay like I guess 500 hrivna to go to the top and have a look of kyiv from birds view ? Highly recommended this place if u ever visit kyiv
It's incredibly imposing & it dominates the skyline for some distance to the west of the city. Beneath it is a museum, which I did not have time to enter. There are a number of imposing sculptures, relating to the Soviet struggle in WW2 - i.. Read more »

One of the best places i visited in Kiev. It is absolutely amazing. You should definitely visit this place if you are anywhere nearby. There are also museums and WW2 army vehicles on display.
Monumental statue and park around offer great views of Kyev. Whole park is very clean and has breathtaking atmosphere. Everything is so large and you feel how small are you as a human being.
The motherland monument is just massive. And they have a nice military equipment exhibition outside displaying everything from tanks to ballistic missiles. The museum inside the motherland monument is okay. Pretty much everything are in Ukrainian exc.. Read more »
Wonderful World war museum and fantastic monument of Motherland which is 91 Mtr height just half the height of Sardar Vallabh bhai statue in Gujarat India. This is best place in Kyiv every one must visit and enjoy
The flow of the museum is a bit awkward. It zig zags back and forth instead of flowing naturally. My favorite part was the exhibit about the current conflict in eastern Ukraine.
Standing proudly over the Kiev skyline is the 340-foot tall, stainless steel Soviet Mother Motherland statue. Originally intended to be even taller, the sword of the statue was cut because it was higher than the cross of the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra - ren.. Read more »

Great place to visit. It has huge area around it, good for photos and relaxing. Also it's one of the points on the amazing bike route.
You can pay and take a trip up the statue and go on the viewing platform with some stunning views. To go all the way up the top there are some very narrow ladders so be prepared, they do confirm with you at the bottom that you are fit and capable of .. Read more »
