While visting the Kiev Golden Gate be sure to find this statue in the little park surrounding the gate. The lionlike cat who resided in the neighbourhood must have made a great impression on the locals.

Nothing extraordinary but do stop by if you are in the area. If you like cats, you will be happy to add a picture with the bronze Pantelemon to your album. Meow!

This is OK but nothing special. It's located next to the Golden Gate site so it's convenient to check out if you're there. I never saw the one on the side of a tree though. It must have been removed.
