Great Patriotic War Museum, Kiev: 6 reviews and 19 photos

Ukrainians & Russians know World War II as the Great Patriotic War. America lost about 405,000 troops in WWII; Russia lost over 10 million. The museum dedicated to this event is a very impressive complex of different areas: galleries, statues, Soviet military equipment on display, and the museum itself. I've always loved sculpture, especially large sculpture, and there's plenty of massive sculptures to view. The centerpiece of the whole site being the gigantic titanium sculpture of a woman holding a sword & shield.
