Where would you find a monument that is higher than the Statue of Liberty?
The Motherland Monument, Kiev, Ukraine.
The Motherland Monument is part of the National Museum of the History of Ukraine in the Second World War and symbolizes the feat accomplished by people during the war. This museum was opened on May 9, 1981 in honour of the Soviet victory.
The majesty of the monument is really impressive.
Complete construction took 3 years of which it took only 6 months to assemble “Mother Motherland” sculpture itself. Over 3000 tons of metal and more than 3,500 cubic meters of concrete have been used on the foundations. And about 30 kilometers of the welding seams were made during the joint assembly and welding process.
When you look at the sculpture, it’s hard to believe that a small shield has a size of 12×8 meters; sword length is 16 meters. On the edge of the sword there is a special device for damping of vibrations of wind loads.
At a height of 36.6 and 91.0 meters the viewing platforms are equipped which offer the panoramic views of the capital of Ukraine.
