This statue doesn't really fit the theme of the park that its in. But it's still interesting to see if you're in the area.

Beautiful fountain, especially attractive if it works. It was restored many times. It looks a little unkempt, but that doesn't stop him from being a favorite place for meetings

It`s boring and abandoned statue in the center of Kontraktova Square. Better not waste your time on it.

In a city filled with beautiful and vital monuments, this one is quite sad. There did not appear to be a restoration and we happened upon it. Glad we didn't go on a search for it specifically.

It's an interesting statue to view after leaving the metro on the way to Saint Andrews church I think by summer 2014 the major refurbishment work being carried out near by will be complete Then the square will be greatly uplifted

It's not interesting in the least bit. Don't waste your time looking for it at all. Just go do something else.

This fountain is at the corner of a small park next to the tram terminus in Podil. It's a relatively modern painted sculpture depicting the biblical scene of Samson fighting the lion. The paintwork could do with some attention and the water trickles out almost...More
