The monument is impressive, but in the end, it is just a monument. Unless you have someone sharing the story of it, it is a photo among other photos. It is near Saint Sophia Cathedral.

This is a rather unimpressive and centrally located monument to an Ukrainian kozzak. The monument is dramatically lit after dark.

Monument must see to one of the Great Ukrainians. Monument themselves is nice. Another "must see" places around.

Centrally located, inspiring and glorious moment as symbol of Ukraine's fight for the independence! Conveniently located and attached to St. Sophia Church,- a must see spot in Kyiv
