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.
