In this article we suggest you familiarize yourself with a rating of the most ridiculous monuments of our capital: both in their architectural embodiment and on their territorial arrangement, as for instance monument to single mother in front of Registry office, but first things first.

Some of you would say “… first create something, and only than criticize”, but we have yet had a courage to express our opinion about architectural forms, that are surrounding us. So do not judge strictly.

1.Zaporozhets monument is placed by an address, Vasilkovskaya st., 20 Motor Road College building.

According to a legend the prototype of the first Soviet car that came down off the assembly line in 1960 has become a model of German car Volkswagen Beatle, it is hardly to say if it is true, now. What do you think, do the students continue to learn more of this “miracle-car” to this time?

2.Garbage truck monument is placed on Gazoprovodnaya st., 2, near City Cemetery “Bercovczi”.

musorovozKiev is the only city in the world that has a monument to garbage truck, so we can be proud of such an achievement. An idea of creating this monument came up to mind of employees of Kiev Special transport, to raise the prestige of the profession of the city sanitation workers in the masses’ minds. It was settled in 2004 and was dedicated to 35 anniversary of the founding KievSpeszTransport.

These cars aren’t in use now, instead of them became new modern ones.

3.Single Mother monument

4.Monument to the defenders of the boundaries of the all generations

The monument was set in May of 2004. It’s creators are: an architect Yuriy Lisicin, the sculptors Valeriy Medvedev and Alexander Rodionov. Not being a professional, looking at this monument,it is clear that something wrong with its proportions. Among the people this monument got a name “Man riding a dog”.

But the fault of the horse body – is not only flaw of this monument. If to look more carefully you may see that horse is not saddled. Nevertheless the Cossack’s body position indicates that he is on his stirrups. It is a riddle how he does it with unsaddled horse…
