Kiev Landscape Alley

One after another started to appear sculptures: on high pedestals of pillows sit angels in nightgowns, multicolored figures of peeing boys, characters from the “Alice in the Wonderland”, kissing zebras, and a statue of Little Prince with a fox cub. Except for the sculptures and monuments, you will be surprised to see original benches.

One of it seems to be covered with a real plaid – it was he casually put near the pillow. It seems that you can lie and have a sleep after a long walk. The other one is absolutely not a bench but a real swing for a group of friends. The third bench is held by hands which grow right out of the ground.
