I made my first trip to Babi Yar (aka Babyn Yar on google maps) today and it was a somber, moving experience. The park is beautiful and well maintained as of Oct. 2016. Even still, one could imagine as they walked the grounds the horrible tragedy that happened here not so long ago. Numerous guide maps around the park point... More

Some monuments and rememberance of the killings. Easy to find at Metro stop. Plenty of space to explore and think.

Most people think of Germany and Poland when thinking of the WWII era Holocaust. This memorial remembers Ukrainian Jews that were also victims of NAZI violence.

We visited using a description of a review on here - It has changed since and the Ukrainian government has spent some money improving the whole site. It was the 75th anniversary at the end of September so I imagine most of the work was completed for that. I have attached some photos to show the site map and some... More

Visited Babi Yar on the 1st of October, and clearly improvements were made since the last reviews of September. These are probably as a result of the 75th anniversary on 29 and 30 September. There are now clear indications of all the different monuments, and beautiful plaques tell the story of Babi Yar. The gardens and walkways are well kept.... More

As previous writers have said, thanks for the guidance notes but credit to the authorities as they are now pulling the stops out, planting trees, sowing new grass and providing new lighting alongside the newly laid pathway. We were there today: it was deserted except for work people. The monument was clean, a couple of stones, a few memorial candles... More

It's incredibly moving to see the Menorah and other monuments at Babi Yar, and to see the ravine where the killings took place. I found it very useful to read in advance what other Tripadvisor reviewers have said about how to find the various monuments and points of interest. Otherwise they are not easy to find. At the time I... More

This was quite hard to find, as there are no signs, as the park is huge and Google maps just doesn't really help. The park was in the midst of construction so it wasn't as beautiful as it could be within the surroundings.
