Monument · Tourist Spot
Sword and shield raised triumphantly in the air, Rodina Mat (Motherland) commemorates the Soviet Union's defense of the homeland against Nazi Germany's invasion during World War II. You can see the towering statue by visiting Kiev's World War II museum; you'll find it located nearby in an outdoor exhibition area. The titanium statue of a woman, standing 62 m (203 ft) high, represents the Soviet Union and the horrific human suffering it endured in the war against Hitler's Germany. You can hop aboard an elevator at the base and travel to a viewing platform part way up the statue for a sweeping view of Kiev.
