Motherland Kyiv monument, dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives in the Second World War, was unveiled in 1981 after a long and difficult planning process. The statue itself is 62 meters tall and is made entirely of stainless steel. Its base is the Kyiv WWII Museum’s Hall of Glory, inside which one can find the names of over 11,000 soldiers and workers who earned the title of Hero of the Soviet Union or the Hero of Socialist Labor during the war engraved on massive marble slabs. Together with its base, the monument weighs 560 tons. Her sword is 16 meters long, while her shield is 13 meters by 8 and emblazoned with the state seal of the Soviet Union.
In the spring and summer, visitors to the Second World War museum may actually go inside the statue for a virtually unbeatable view of the city.
In March "Extreme" observation platform was opened at the monument as the National Museum of Ukrainian History in the Second World War has reported.
The platform is located at a height of 91 meters, and it is possible to get there only in good weather with the temperature from + 5 to + 30 ° С, with no precipitation and strong wind blast.
The observation platform works every day from 10:00 to 17:30. The cost of a visit for one person is 300 hryvnia.
