  • This monument is one of the symbols of the city. It is a bit far from the busiest places in the city which limit access but his Bill is moving. It represents the Lybid Princess and his three brothers came to found the city of Kiev in the 5th century. The monument embodies to him only the masculinity of the Ukrainians and so feminine beauty of the women of this country. You will find a set of statuary that pays the same tribute on the independence square in the city center.

  • Really expansive space. Not easily walkable to other monuments nearby, but worth the effort (cabs are inexpensive way to get there, less than 2-3 USD from most of the city).  more »
  • A favorite place for a lot of wedding couples. They bring flowers to this monument. The reason is a mystery to me :)  more »
