Memorial Park, Kiev Ukraine

The Memorial Park of the Great Patriotic War

Memorial WWII (7)

Over the next couple of months, I will be re-visiting some of the familiar sites in Kiev, Ukraine..  My time here is almost done.

I have one more major trip planned and then my effort gets diverted into getting the paperwork in place, signed and approved for the next assignment… Hopefully Moscow in July..

Memorial Park – Chisinau

 

The Victory Memorial and Eternal Flame Park is about a 20 minute walk from downtown…and well worth it..

Walking around Bila Tserkva – Photos

Just thought I would add some more images from the day trip to Bila Tserkva.. It is a small city about 70 km southeast of Kyiv, Ukraine.. A lovely place to spend a day shooting..  There are several churches of note.. a beautiful river .. parks and memorials …markets and coffee shops..

It is easily reached by marshrutka in about an hour and a half for 30 uah… The mini buses leave about every 20 minutes from near the Palats Ukraine metro station.

Shot of the Day – Hero Cities (Kyiv)

Hero City Monument

Hero City Monument

Just west of Shuliavs’ka metro stop on Prospekt Peremohy, you will find the columns naming the Hero Cities of World War II.  Kiev was awarded the title “Hero City” in 1965. Sharing this small plaza is the T-34 Tank monument, erected in 1968 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the liberation of Kiev by Soviet forces.
