The Motherland Monument, also called 'Brezhnev's Daughter', is a massive state made of titanium symbolizing Soviet Union's triumph over Nazi Germany.
Located in Kiev (Ukraine), the statue is 62 meters high and can be seen from different points around the city. Not to mention, it is Kiev's most distinctive feature. At the statue's base is a museum that honors Ukrainian soldiers who defended Kiev during the Second World War.
The museum is one of the major reasons why you should see the statue from close quarters and not just be content with getting a glimpse of it from a distance. The museum charges a minimal entry fee.Places nearby:
