  • One of the most famous landmarks in Kiev. Unfortunately, because of the quarantine, it is impossible to go upstairs in the motherland of the mother. But you can have a lot of fun just walking outside. A walk through the museum under the sky is free. The monument offers a stunning view of the left bank of Kiev.
  • This is a great look at the war from an Eastern Europe perspective. The exhibit of widows is especially moving.
