Motherland Statue in Kyiv

Our rating: 8.60
Overall rating:

The Motherland statue in Kyiv belongs to the top 20 tallest statues of the world and is therefore worth a visit. In Europe (excluding Russia) there are no statues of this size. The statue is a part of the National Museum of the Great Patriotic War.

In 2010, there was an opportunity to visit the statue inside and climb to the topmost observation deck at the height of 92 meters. In 2002, observation deck on the statue's shield had been opened for the first time, but a year later someone fell from there. After the incident the deck was closed, but now it's open again. The ticket price is $32. As I read in the Internet, the time you can spend on the shield is now limited by 10 minutes.

The observation deck works not always. For example, when the weather is hot, it can be shut down due to overheating of the metal. Tour organizers have no website, so find the phone number in the Internet or go to the statue and clarify the information onsite. The tour lasts at least an hour.

Upstairs there is a small cell behind the shield, as well as two "holes" in the top panel of the shield. I read in someone's blog in 2011 that they couldn't visit the "holes" in the shield. That's ridiculous. Be sure to clarify this moment with the organizers before climbing. If you are not allowed to visit the shield, then don't waste your time.

We were raised to the shield and wore climbing equipment.
