Interesting.

This is kind of a unique statue for the area. It can be seen anywhere from the main square downtown.

It doesn't take long to stop and photograph the fiddler on the roof but it's worth doing if you're in the area.

There isn't much to say. It's a statue of a guy playing the fiddle, on a roof. Difficult to get a good photo unless you have a good camera.

First of all if you want to understand what is all about, go and watch a spectacular performance (it doesn't matter where you can find it)

He is playing the violin... on the roof opposite the conservatory... I guess it was a very beautiful and wonderful music...

This is interesting to see if you are in the area. But don't make a special trip downtown just for this. Don't get me wrong. I thinks it's cool to have this on top of the building. But it's nothing super spectacular.

Ukraine has a large number of very interesting statues and monuments. This one is no exception. It is in a startling location, completely unexpected. I love it!

This statue is promoted as a Kharkiv's symbol but I would not say it is something special.. The city has many statues which are nicer although this one in the center.
