One of the highest sculptures in the world, stands on the right bank of Dnieper visible from distant points of the Ukrainian capital. If you want to see the whole Kiev in 5 minutes, it is the best place for this.

According to one popular legend, during the construction of the monument the Metropolitan of Kiev was negotiating with First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist party of Ukraine that the sculpture was not above the Great Lavra bell tower, located near the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra. Weapons can not be above the cross. And then it was decided to shorten the sword of the sculpture. Tip of the sword is really below the top of the bell tower of 12 meters.

In "Motherland" tours are escorted by museum staff to two observation platforms. First is at a height of 36 meters, and the second site is situated at 91 meters — there you'll be able to see the city and see all its beauty.

The lift is a diagonal lift, stairs, vertical and diagonal. Captures the spirit of the seen beauty and height when you pop out of the hatch on the shield!
The tour runs every day from 10-17. Raise 2 human, because a very narrow Elevator and platform for viewing. Turn a living, tip - visit the national Museum of history of the second world war and get left on the couch. You will approach a guide to tell them everything. The average duration of 40 minutes. 200 UAH. per person (and a bonus for extra charge)

Интересен сам подъем - диагональный лифт, лестницы вертикальные и диагональные. Дух захватывает от увиденной красоты и высоты, когда высовываешься из люка на щите!
Экскурсия проходит каждый день с 10-17. Поднимают по 2 человека, т.к. очень узкий лифт и сама площадка для просмотра. Очередь живая, подсказка - заходите в Национальный музей истории ВОВ и садитесь слева на диванчик. К вам подойдет гид и все расскажет. В среднем продолжительность 40 минут. 200 грн. за человека (и бонус за доп.оплату)

Unfortunately, the sword of Moscow was supposedly cut because it was longer than any sword from Moscow.

Leider wurde angeblich das Schwert von Moskau gekürzt weil es länger als irgend ein Schwert aus Moskau war.

Beautiful place. The statue is huge! On a Sunny day it is quite difficult to fit it in the lens :) If you're ever in Kiev, be sure to visit this place.

Красивое место. Статуя просто огромная! В солнечный день довольно сложно уместить ее в объектив :) Если будете в Киеве, обязательно посетите это место.

Great spot, it is almost like going up the Statue of Liberty, but a little smaller. It was well worth the UAH 200 to go to the top of the statue and have the 360 view of Kiev! The museum in the base of the statue was very interesting, too! If you do go up the statue, make sure you are wearing close toed shoes and pants. It is a requirement.
