Nice monument to the patron saints of the city. Princess Olga in the middle. The 2 guys on the right are the ones to create the alphabet for the Russian/Ukrainian language. Saint Andrew is on the left looking like he's ordering a taxi

Very nice statue of very strong woman. If you know the history and you know who is this, you will diffenetly enjoy the view on this monument. The location is great, if you are visiting Kiev you will pass by anyway.

This statue is OK. Nothing special. It is located right outside the main cathedral. So you wouldn't need to make a special trip to check it out.
