I love the fact that the spoon is actually designed for lying down and posing for photos. It’s a truly local monument.

Big deal with locals. Good photo op. It's on the way as you walk to the White Arbor so it's worth taking a look. As far as a stand alone attraction ... Don't think so.

One of the famous dishes in Ukraine is the local dumpling. This monument is a huge plate of dumplings. This reminds you to go eat some! :p

Not sure what to say about a big bowl of dumplings that people sit on and amidst to have their photo taken. Well, it's between the White Rotunda and Uspensky Cathedral so,,,, why not stop and take photo.

I like artwork, the concept of this art and everything but the "marshmellow" dumplings in this work. Whomever made dumplings look like marshmellows appears to have no idea what the dumplings look or taste like here. They are the joke of Poltava and any tourist...More

This type of places is for 'been here done that' people. I didn't know that Poltava dumplings are famous. When I see the monument I know they are.

As a foreigner I initially failed to see the importance of this sculpture but after several explanations I understand the local (Ukraine) pride and accept that it is a legitimate attraction.

Even though located in a nice place, this particular monument is rather unimpressive and unimaginative. Locals do not like it. But if you like to be photographed in a gigantic spoon next to stones imitating dumplings - then it is a place for you to...More
