In 1982 in the Kreschaty Park a sculptural composition was installed in honor of unification of Ukraine with Russia. The sculpture consists of a giant metal arch and two sculptural groups. The exact date of the opening at this moment is not specified.

The central object in the composition is a monument of Friendship of Peoples, which is depicted in the form of Ukrainians and Russians, who hold in their hands ribbon with medal "Friendship of People".

Near stands sculpture on the motives of the Pereiaslav Rada (Council). In the center of sculpture are Bohdan Khmelnytsky and Vasily Buturlin, a Russian Ambassador. Pereyaslav Rada - meeting of representatives of Zaporizhzhya Cossacks led by Hetman Bohdan Khmelnytsky, held in January 1654 in Pereiaslav, which was taken the decision to unite the territory of Zaporizhia Army with the Russian Tsardom, enshrined in the oath of allegiance to Russian czar.

Sculptural groups connected by the arch, which according to the intention of its creators was to symbolize the unity of two nations. In the sections of the arch is built-in multi-colored illumination, the arch in the evenings looks like a real rainbow.

There is an observation place behind the monument which offers magnificent views of Podil, Poshtova square, Trukhanov island, the Dnieper and left-Bank Kyiv.

Great river views. Good place for photographs. If you are near Maidan, it is worth taking a short walk to here.

One of the best spots in Kiev for stunning panoramic views of the river Dnepr! There are a few kiosks around selling food, drinks & ice-cream.
Romantic atmosphere in the evenings

This statue used to mean something, but now? Well it also has a great overlook of the city and when I was there had a trolley over the river to the park which is worth a try.

In vacation working there for the cable car to the island with the beach. Rather, for the brave, because flying from the mountain above the Dnipro river, only in suspenders, high-rise maintenance teams of the facade.

W wakacje działa tam kolejka linowa na wyspę z plażą. Raczej dla odważnych, bo leci się z góry nad Dnieprem tylko w szelkach alpinistycznych.

I was last there in 1992
The place is beautiful, great view of the river.
Then still this monument is dedicated was upamietnieniu connection of Ukraine with Russia (after the defeat of Khmelnytsky).
The new name of the monument (in my opinion) a great escape from the awkward situation historically.
Word recognition for smart Ukrainians.

Byłem tam ostatnio w 1992r
Miejsce piękne, wspaniały widok na Dniepr.
Wtedy jeszcze pomnik ten dedykowany był upamiętnieniu połączenia się Ukrainy z Rosją (po klęsce Chmielnickiego).
Nowa nazwa pomnika jest (według mnie) doskonałym wyjściem z niezręcznej historycznie sytuacji.
Wyrazy uznania dla mądrych Ukraińców.
