Hedgehog Monument, Kiev
(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Visit one of film's most lovable creatures at Hedgehog Monument, which represents the main character of Yuri Norstein's classic Soviet animated movie, "Hedgehog in the Fog." Created by Kyiv Landscape Initiative, the statue honors this 1975 movie, named as the world's best animated film in 2003. The monument highlights the hedgehog's wooden face and iron spikes as he sits on a stump with a jar of jam in his hands. Some visitors throw coins at the site, hoping it will bring good luck.

  • Yes, it's a hedgehog, not great if you look at all the other monuments. But funny and worth a photo.

  • In my opinion, lives in Kyiv a myriad of creative people. I specifically looked for this Sculpture, in memory of the cartoons, about our common history and received a great deal of fun!

  • In more such monuments in Kiev, which could douse us in childhood, at least for a few seconds and otvlech from the drab everyday work and give a good mood for the day!
