How to climb to the Mother Motherland in Kiev
Mother Motherland monument is in the "Museum of History of Ukraine in World War II." Inside the monument are two elevators - vertical and inclined that will lead you to two viewing platforms.

The lower platform is located near the feet of the sculpture. The upper deck is located at the head of the Mother Motherland, and you can reach its shield (90 metres). Excursion to the upper platform is possible only with a guide.

It should be noted that the area is fenced with the grid for the safety, but on top of the eye level is a free place where you can make great pictures of Kiev.
