The monument is huge and sometimes an overlook. There are a lot of different military machines around it and some soviet monuments. Worth to visit especially at night

The Motherland or Rodina Mat is an extraordinary building that can be seen from all over Kiev. This structure, which is 102 meters high, salutes the people of Kiev since 1981.

Can't say that she is "gorgeous", but the location has been truly impressive. Reminded me of some good and bad memories in my childhood. It sounds strange, but this place was really inspiring
